Triumph Foundation programs assist a person from the beginning of their injury with our Care Basket Outreach; down the road to recovery getting the necessary goods and services to achieve independence through our Keep Moving Forward Grant and Exchange program; and then assist a person with SCI to reemerge into the community by helping them emotionally through our Support Groups and restore a sense of life and adventure through our Adaptive Recreation activities. We have become a force in the community that is a critical resource to people living with paralysis.
To date, the Triumph Foundation has touched the lives of over 5,000 individuals with disabilities; given $250,000 in assistance to people with inadequate medical insurance and financial hardship; performed ten accessible home remodels; provided wheelchair accessible vehicles to six individuals who did not have the means to purchase one on their own; handed out over 2,000 Care Baskets full of resources to those newly injured; and regularly visited 18 area hospitals and rehabilitation centers throughout the Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, Riverside, Kern, and San Diego counties.
Triumph Foundation primarily focuses on people that have Spinal Cord Injury/Disorder (SCI/D) that causes paralysis. Many of our programs are open to any person dealing with disability. Our outreach supports children, adults, and Veterans; and people of all backgrounds and demographics. The majority of our outreach is in Southern California, but we also provide resources and assistance to people across the United States.
We provide support to the SCI community by:
- Giving newly injured people Care Baskets that provide information and resources about the many organizations, assistance programs, and activities that exist to help people with SCI with their new beginning and to enable them to keep living their lives to the fullest potential. They are like tool-kit to help someone rebuild their life. This is the cornerstone of our outreach.
- Helping people with home modifications for wheelchair accessibility.
- Assisting people with financial constraints and inadequate health insurance to get necessary equipment, supplies, and services.
- Expanding Disabled Sports, Fitness & Recreational opportunities by sponsoring wheelchair sports teams, hosting adaptive recreational activities, and supporting outdoor adventures for people with disabilities.
- Hosting an Equipment & Supply Exchange program that helps people donate old, used, and extra durable medical goods to someone in need. We help find a home for adaptive equipment & supplies pairing people who are in need with people who have items to donate.
- Founding and taking leadership roles in support groups.
- Providing mentorship & advocacy to people who are injured and to their families & friends affected by a SCI.
- Our goal is help people with Spinal Cord Injury reintegrate back into the community.
