This organization works extremely hard to protect the rights of people with disabilities and is focused on grassroots efforts across the country with their chapters. The resource center has excellent information about living with a spinal cord injury and the staff is VERY helpful.

Professional with expertise in this field

I commend the work of United Spinal to help people living with SCI. They've been around for a long time advocating for wheelchair users, especially in NYC, making sure public transportation is accessible to all! Keep fighting the good fight!

When rated by the armed forces charity review, united spinal/wwp was rated a D because of bloated salaries and administrative costs. Actual donation to helping vets was less than 25%
