BACKBONES exists to provide free support for people with spinal cord injury and their families. Through our network, we facilitate 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 informally, and make lasting friendships.

BACKBONES is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
