Thriving in community
Our work spans the full spectrum of life after a spinal cord injury, from supporting newly injured people in the hospital, collaborating with health providers and social service providers to ensure coordination of care and a seamless discharge plan, to building a thriving and supportive community of individuals with spinal cord injuries.
Oregon Spinal Cord Injury Connection is in the midst of a 12-month process of listening and learning about racism and ableism in the State of Oregon. This investment of time to learn and become grounded in principles of equity and justice will be the foundation for evaluating the organization, its programs and ultimately articulating its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. At this time OSCI does not have a board-approved equity statement, but our team and our work is deeply invested in creating attitudinal and systemic change that removes oppression against the disability community and those who live at the intersection of multiple marginalizing identities with disability.
Stories of how we thrive
Whether it’s through our adaptive camping program, wheelchair maintenance workshop, or a meet-up, a “frequent dose of community” will make the transition after a spinal cord injury easier.
