BACKBONES is a nonprofit organization that exists to provide support for people with spinal cord injury (SCI) and their families nationwide. Through one-on-one telephone, in-person or web-based connections we encourage sharing experiences and motivate people to live life to the fullest!
BACKBONES events create an alternative to the traditional “support group” where people can ask questions, learn from each other informally and make lasting friendships.
When & Where
BACKBONES provides one-on-one peer support for people with spinal cord injury and their families. We've built a peer network through telephone, in-person or web-based connections and encourage growth by the sharing of experiences and ideas. As a host to events BACKBONES creates an inviting atmosphere where people can ask questions, learn from each other in an informal setting and make lasting friendships.
