Mission & History

The Spina Bifida Association of Kentucky's mission is to promote the prevention of Spina Bifida and to enhance the lives of all affected.  

The Spina Bifida Association of Kentucky is a resource center for children, their families and adults affected by Spina Bifida. SBAK educates parents how to be the best advocate for their child, and helps children and adults overcome physical, cognitive and social challenges to become successful and independent.

SBAK has been helping, advocating for, and connecting people with Spina Bifida in Kentucky for over 30 years. The medical world has advanced dramatically since 1983, and SBAK has made great strides as well.
