Paralyzed Veterans Association of Florida is a non profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to improve the lives of veterans with a spinal cord injury or dysfunction (SCI/D) and other persons with disabilities to achieve maximum health, productivity and self esteem in their daily lives.

Our program services include ensuring quality health care, providing a wide range of wheelchair sports and recreation activities, advocating and educating the public on all issues encompassed in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and research and education addressing SCI/D.

PVAF was founded in Miami in September of 1956. Its founders saw the urgent need to provide injured veterans with services that could enhance and improve the quality of their lives. The Florida chapter encompasses Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Martin Counties. We receive no local, state or federal funding. We are solely dependent upon the awareness and generosity of individuals and businesses within our community.

Approximately 750,000 American men, women and children have a spinal cord impairment. And in most cases, until a cure is found, these Americans will spend the rest of their lives using a wheelchair for mobility and battling the obstacles of everyday life. It does not matter how the impairment occurred; only that it will drastically change a person's life and lifestyle.
