Our Mission

The Southern California Wheelchair Veterans Association was founded in 2002. Our local organization was started to assist those veterans returning from the Iraq war, as well as those who were previously disabled in other conflicts.  Our programs have had a positive impact on thousands of local veterans. We are a “hands on organization” that goes into our local hospitals to visit with these men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

These soldiers and their families spend months and even years confined in the hospitals with severe spinal, limb, and brain injuries. We support their rehabilitation and recreation programs by supplying the funds, equipment and support needed to help them get back to living life. 

Veterans Day Picnic

Some of the many programs which we have been involved with over the years include Easter and Christmas gift basket distributions and BBQ's with a live band at our local hospitals. We also purchase laptops and desktop computers, voice activated software, exercise equipment, electric wheelchairs, movies on DVD, internet service, cable TV, and many other programs.

We sponsor many veterans to go to The National Wheelchair Games, The Golden Age Games, and the summer and winter sports clinics.

Your support allows us to greatly improve the lives of many disabled veterans in our area, most of them who are confined in local hospitals.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is when you include a charitable gift in your estate plans. You may put us in your will, trust, retirement plans or life insurance policies. You don't need to have a large estate to change the lives of our veterans.

When you give to our organization, you help our mission to improve the quality of life for our returning veterans. The needs of those returning are greater than they have ever been. We are here to provide resources along with rehabilitation, to build opportunities for these men and women to be able to move forward with their lives. When you leave your home, car or other assets to our organization, you are ensuring our ability to care for those who serve us now, and in the future.
