Spinal Network

An Affiliate Chapter of United Spinal

Let's build a world where Community means Integration and Inclusion, where Community means Participation, and where Community means Independence.  

Mission Statement

Spinal Network's mission is to promote community integration, participation, and independence for individuals with a disability requiring the use of a wheelchair for their mobility, by providing the tools and community support to be successful in their work and personal lives. Our goal is to maximize quality of life, raise self-esteem and improve physical and mental health.

Vision Statement

Spinal Network creates pathways to success through events, assistive technology loans, peer mentoring and support, and other impactful programs that promote community integration, participation, and independence. Our sponsors and partners, all of whom share this vision, collaborate with Spinal Network by providing resources and supporting its programs to achieve its goals.
