Key Objectives of MNPVA

The key objective of the Paralyzed Veterans of America is to take those actions necessary to restore spinal cord injury or diseased victims’ bodies and life potentials as closely as humanly possible to those Americans not suffering spinal cord dysfunction. This will be accomplished by the coordinated efforts of the PVA organization through programs to:

  • Advocate for and monitor the delivery of high quality and appropriate health care benefits and services
  • Assist to identify and secure veterans’ benefits and other benefits for paralyzed veterans and others as appropriate
  • Promote medical research to cure spinal cord dysfunction and other related problems
  • Educate society about the attitudinal, physical, and legal barriers that confront persons with disabilities in order to influence the removal of those barriers
  • Provide information and opportunities for health promotion, recreation, employment, sports, services, and camaraderie for paralyzed veterans and others as appropriate
  • Cooperate with and see the support of other groups and individuals that share PVA’S objectives
  • Acquaint the public with the current and ongoing needs and current and past contributions of America’s veterans
  • Promote involvement of the public in national and local activities that support PVA’S mission
