The Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) program offers vocationally-oriented services to veterans with disabilities, especially those veterans with spinal cord dysfunction. Through this program PVA vocational rehabilitation counselors located in a Veterans Administration (VA) Spinal Cord Injury Center will meet with veterans to discuss and explore their future career options, work with medical personnel discuss employment expectations as veterans are working to achieve their medical rehabilitation goals, serve as a coordinator for various vocational rehabilitation resources in the federal, state, and private arenas, inform veterans of the benefit programs available to them and when appropriate assist them to apply for programs such as Social Security, State-Vocational Rehabilitation Programs, and community-based programs, and develop a network of employers who are willing to train/provide career jobs for veterans. For more information call the Veterans Benefits Department at (800) 424-8200, TTY: 800-795-4327 or e-mail info@pva.org.
