Oregon Spinal Cord Injury Connection

Services Provided: Oregon Spinal Cord Injury (OSCI) exists to build community and create opportunities for
people affected by spinal cord injury. Those who sustain an injury have an arduous life-long journey of
adapting to paralysis, staying healthy, and rebuilding their life while personally coping with social stigma,
systemic oppression against disabilities, and navigating a built environment that often isn’t created for
individuals with disabilities. A spinal cord injury (SCI) creates a tremendous physical, emotional, psychological
and financial burden on their families and communities. OSCI helps those with a spinal cord injury thrive.

Cost/Funding: Free to Spinal Cord injury or people living with paralysis.

Comments: Wheelchair accessible.
