Why Give?

The Spina Bifida Association of Iowa (SBAIA) serves adults and children who live with the challenges of spina bifida. Our mission is to build a better and brighter future for all those impacted by spina bifida. SBAIA is an affiliated chapter of the Spina Bifida Association, the only national voluntary health agency solely dedicated to enhancing the lives of those with spina bifida and those whose lives are touched by this challenging birth defect. Education, advocacy, and service are at the heart of SBAIA’s local programs. Research is supported at the national level by the Spina Bifida Association.

Lives are changed by the programs SBAIA creates, the services the organization provides, and the accomplishments of its advocacy efforts. As a part of the SBA network of chapters, the Spina Bifida Association of Iowa touches hundreds of people each year. This organization serves individuals with spina bifida and their families in Iowa. This is only made possible with the financial support of individuals like you who support SBAIA.

SBAIA works with a dedicated group of professionals, families, and individuals with spina bifida to provide resources, build connections, educate, advocate, and increase public awareness of spina bifida. Our goal is to provide resources to help individuals with spina bifida manage their condition and thrive!
