New Beginning is a nationwide initiative that empowers individuals to overcome the wide-range of challenges that accompany living with a spinal cord injury or disorder.The BackPack serves to help people find quality healthcare and resources; employment opportunities and education; choose the proper adaptive equipment and home modifications; locate peer support groups; and find a new beginning.
National Spinal Cord Injury Association is distributing backpacks to people newly injured or diagnosed that are leaving hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.The backpacks contain information and consumer resources on mobility and medical equipment, disability benefits, accessible housing, leisure and travel, healthcare, and much more.Most people are universally unprepared at first to live with a life-changing injury or disease.The quicker we can reach these individuals and their family members and caregivers, the better their outcomes will be.
