Face Time With a Peer Mentor

After having a SCI/D, life seems upside down. The Greater Boston Chapter of United Spinal Association works one on one with you to help improve your quality of life. All of our peer mentors have had years of experience with a spinal cord injury or disorder. There is life after SCI/D. We’re here to support and empower you to reach your goals and return to doing the things you love. We are here to support you with whatever your recovery holds. Because we want you to thrive in life as we have.

Roll to Win

Our annual Roll to Win Casino Night and Gala celebrates our mentors and the work that they do. It's a wonderful night of gambling with funny money, auctions and raffles, and a great excuse to get dressed up.

Annual Holiday Party

Every year we have a holiday party with our very own Santa! It began with having our organization's mentors getting together and in recent years we have opened it up to our members. Last year was filled with fun, good food, and an ugly holiday sweater contest! Check out our Events page for this years Holiday Party.

Annual Stroll And Roll

Started in 2016, we have a potluck picnic and hike on an accessible trail at DCR's Harold Parker State Park in Andover. The trails we explore are accessible by wheelchair, but many of or participants use one of the many fun adapted vehicles and chairs that some of our mentors bring along for people to try out.
