Northwest Paralyzed Veterans of America takes great pride in advocating for veterans on current Veterans Affairs issues.
The Chapter sends a team of four individuals to Washington DC each year to make sure veterans' voices are heard. No other Chapter sends as many advocates as NWPVA.
Our mission is to assure that veterans receive the care, support and treatment promised by the United States government for their service to our country.
