Thriving in community

More than anything else, those connected to community after a spinal cord injury are the most likely to thrive.
No one anticipates having a spinal cord injury. There is no cure, and few are prepared for such a catastrophic change.

But we are.

We fan the flames of resilience and map a plan to health and hope. Oregon Spinal Cord Injury Connection is the bridge to vital community resources and services, and those who get connected to our Community Health Worker Team overcome this trying time and thrive!

Help us fund this vital work by making a tax-deductible donation and sharing our story with your networks.

Our Mission

Oregon Spinal Cord Injury Connection promotes health, builds community and creates opportunity for people affected by spinal cord injury. Our goal is to ensure everyone who sustains a spinal cord injury has the care and community they need to thrive.


Our work spans the full spectrum of life after a spinal cord injury, from supporting newly injured people in the hospital,  collaborating with health providers and social service providers to ensure coordination of care and a seamless discharge plan, to building a thriving and supportive community of individuals with spinal cord injuries.

Stories of how we thrive

Whether it’s through our adaptive camping program, wheelchair maintenance workshop, or a meet-up, a “frequent dose of community” will make the transition after a spinal cord injury easier.
