SCI Illinois - Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois

Welcome to Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois

Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois (a chapter of the United Spinal Association) 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 Mission

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.
