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 Palos Heights, IL, a suburb of Chicago, but we serve the entire state.
Our annual winter benefit, Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay, was a huge success! Thank you to everyone that came to this wonderful event, ate, drank, and danced the night away! A special thank you to all our sponsors, donors, and friends that contributed to our event.
Founded in 1979, the mission of the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (SCIA) is to serve as a comprehensive resource center for individuals who have been personally affected by paralysis, those working in related fields, and other interested persons. The mission also includes working to prevent new injuries from happening.
SCIA seeks to fulfill this mission through a combination of services including Information and Referral, Peer Support, Education and Injury Prevention.
SCIA records are available for review upon request.
