The Experts in Accessible Design
Equal access is a fundamental right, and we all benefit when America is more accessible.
Paralyzed Veterans of America promotes a barrier-free world for all Veterans and people with disabilities—and the architectural design expertise required to make that happen. We are the only veterans service organization with on-staff architects that provide design assistance to Veterans, VA facilities, and the architecture and construction industries.
Our Architecture team helps to develop building codes and standards for the entire nation to follow, so Veterans and other Americans with limited mobility can access any place in their communities safely and with dignity.
Explore our case studies and resources, and contact us if we can be of service.
