Mission Statement

The Spina Bifida Association of Western Pennsylvania is committed to improving the quality of life for people with spina bifida and their families, by providing a continuum of direct service, education and advocacy.

Description

The Spina Bifida Association of Western PA (SBAWP) is a nationally recognized, charitable, nonprofit provider of information and direct services to children and adults with spina bifida and their families. The organization annually serves nearly 1000 children, teens and adults living in 28 counties within Western Pennsylvania and portions of New York, Ohio, and West Virginia.

SBAWP was originally formed in 1969 as a parent support group, and now offers a variety of programs and services including camps and retreats, a Family-School Partnership program, the Gatehouse Prevocational and Life Skills Program and Adult Community and Support Services. Through its programs and services that span a lifetime, the SBAWP gives individuals the resources, self-confidence, and practical skills to lead full and active lives and become contributing members of the community.

The Association corporate office is located near Cranberry Twp., PA and employs a part-time and full-time staff of trained professionals as well as administrative and support personnel. The organization is governed by a board of directors comprised of members of the community, parents of children with spina bifida and business and medical professionals. Programming and operating costs are funded by individual donations as well as Federal, state, corporate and private grants.
