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.
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.

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. If you gained entry into the Bank of America Chicago Marathon through the lottery, you may still choose to run for SCIA! Please contact us today if you would like more information.
