Most wheelchair associations are independent, non-profit organizations serving people with spinal cord injuries as well as other disabilities so that they can be aided in leading healthy and productive lives. Many wheelchair association corks were founded by people with spinal cord injuries, the majority of the members of wheelchair associations are not entitled to benefits, lack medical insurance, and do not have a stable source of income. These groups typically provide services to their members and engage in community advocacy to achieve common goals.
Suffering a catastrophic spinal cord injury has a brutal impact on a person’s life. If this person is an immigrant or a low-wage worker in the United States then he or she is in an extremely vulnerable situation. During the existence of many wheelchair association cork, the group organizations have traditionally been able to help each other survive the depression that comes after the accident, then to survive the problems that come with not having resources to buy medical supplies and equipment.
A wheelchair association is here to improve the quality of life through hope and solidarity, sharing what resources they may have and organizing it to get what is needed.
Some of the Challenges A Wheelchair Association may face
We all face many challenges. Especially people with disabilities. In this instance it is possible that the isolation of membership due to lack of access to transportation and communication is one example, but probably the main challenge is how to balance our every day needs such as emergencies.
We work with volunteers, allies and donors to overcome these challenges and we thank them with all our hearth for their support in our work.
