Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (formerly NSCIA, Illinois Chapter) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing information and support resources for people paralyzed by trauma and medical conditions, family members, and health care and related professionals that serve the SCI community. Our office is located in LaGrange, IL, a suburb of Chicago, but we serve the entire state.
Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (SCIA) is a non-profit health agency founded in 1979. The mission of SCIA is to serve as a comprehensive resource center for individuals who have been paralyzed due to trauma or conditions of the central nervous system, their families, health professionals, policy makers and others interested in spinal cord injury. Activities of SCIA address major areas such as prevention, medical care, rehabilitation, research and other aspects of living with a spinal cord injury.
SCIA seeks to fulfill this mission through a combination of direct services including information and referral, peer support, publications, a newsletter, educational programs for individuals with spinal cord injury, family members and health professionals. The Association also presents programs on prevention of injury.
SCIA records are available for review upon request.
RUN FOR A REASON!!
Life can change in a split second. The ability to walk and use our limbs is so automatic that we never think about it. Imagine, in just one moment of time, paralysis happens and everything changes forever. Make your run in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon more meaningful, and run for those who can’t! If you have already registered for the Chicago Marathon and want to join our team, please contact the SCIA office.
We do have charity entries available for the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! Please contact us for more information.
Plans are underway for a fun-filled day of golf, lunch, dinner, games, raffles, and auctions! And your support of this event is essential so the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (SCIA) can continue to serve people who have been paralyzed by trauma and medical conditions, and to further injury prevention efforts.
SCIA is the organization that families turn to when a person is first injured. We provide resources, peer support and information that is invaluable to those new to the world of paralysis.
