Mission Statement

HeadNorth is a nonprofit (501c3) organization whose mission is to provide essential support and guidance to individuals and families affected by spinal cord injury, while championing a cure for paralysis.

Description

HeadNorth is dedicated to providing HELP and HOPE for spinal cord injury survivors.

HeadNorth meets the transitional needs of SCI survivors, from recovery to rehabilitation to the reintegration into an active lifestyle. HELP is provided through our two core programs; the Recover program and the Thrive program. Through each program, resources, Peer Support and financial assistance helps the injured and their families as they face the daily challenges of living with a SCI and paralysis. Along with our Day in a Chair awareness program, HeadNorth makes a positive impact in our entire San Diego community.

HeadNorth provides not only immediate assistance, but also HOPE for the future. HeadNorth is dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis and has partnered with the Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute and UCSD, to create the HeadNorth Chronic Spinal Cord Injury Project, a spinal cord regeneration research study. Our support of this research will one day mean new possibilities for those living with a SCI.

With approximately 3,000 SCI survivors in San Diego County alone, and new injuries each year, the need for our services continues to grow.
