NTAF Spinal Cord Injury Program
This grant will help to support The Injured Soldier Initiative, which will reach out to returning veterans living with paralysis (specifically, caused by spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury). This initiative will involve educating professionals serving injured military about NTAF Spinal Cord Injury program services. The initiative will be implemented through a developing partnership with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
The organization's unique model empowers patients and families to build on community assets to help themselves by raising funds to afford medically related care otherwise unaffordable, thus promoting independence. NTAF provides materials, guidance and support to families and community-base volunteer networks on how to organize, launch, and sustain grass-roots fundraising campaigns in their home communities. This grant was funded by a generous financial donation from ICAP, the world's leading interdealer broker.
