NYC Spinal Cord Injury Association
Established in 2003, the mission of the New York City Spinal Cord Injury Association (NYCSCIA), is to help people rebuild their lives after spinal cord injury. NYCSCIA is a chapter of United Spinal Association and members enjoy the benefits of being connected to a nationwide network of chapters and support groups. In addition to participating in national initiatives such as United Spinal's annual Roll on Capital Hill, where members try to encourage lawmakers to be mindful of the issues of accessibility and the specific needs of people with disabilities as they enact legislation, NYCSCIA sponsors a variety of local programs and events geared toward helping people with spinal cord injuries maximize their independence and increase their quality of life.
