our mission

The mission of the Greater Kansas City Spinal Cord Injury Association is to provide local resources, services and peer support to individuals with spinal cord injury/disease, their families and professionals. The chapter will assist individuals with the unique difficulties encountered when residing in a bi-state city when searching for information, education and assistance. The chapter will offer the same support to individuals residing in the area but outside the city.
