Triumph Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to help children, adults, and Veterans with Spinal Cord Injury/Disorder to triumph over their disability and to inspire them to keep moving forward with their lives by pushing themselves to get better every day.
Triumph works to minimize the obstacles that one faces after suffering Spinal Cord Injury. We specialize in galvanizing and restoring lives after Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). Triumph Foundation provides resources, hope and security to people living with paralysis – not just initially when the injury/disorder occurs, but as a lifelong support network. Additionally, we hold events that are a captivating force within the entire disabled community. We are the go-to organization for people living with impairment in Southern California.
The cornerstone of our outreach is giving newly injured people Care Baskets that are like tool-kits which provide information and resources about the many organizations, assistance programs, and activities that exist to help people with an SCI with their new beginning and to enable them to keep living their lives to the fullest potential.
Andrew and Kirsten Skinner are Triumph Foundation’s founders. Andrew suffered a C4, C5, & C6 Spinal Cord Injury in 2004 and is a recovering quadriplegic. Kirsten was with Andrew at the time of his injury and has been with him every step of the way. They are now married and are living in Santa Clarita, California. Together they started Triumph Foundation in 2008 in effort to make the road to recovery easier for other people that suffer SCI.
On April 18th, 2017 from 10:30 am-11:30 am Ability Tools will be partnering with Andrew and the Triumph Foundation to provide a free on-line webinar training related to assitive technology for the paralysis community.
