SBANT Overview

Founded in 1973, the Spina Bifida Association of North Texas (SBANT) began as a small support group of parents under the name SBA Dallas. Over the years, the service area expanded to encompass all of North Texas and beyond—from the DFW area, to Central Texas, to the Panhandle and out to El Paso! SBANT volunteers work year-round to provide services outreach, education, referrals, and programs as well as information on prevention (see list on back). SBANT also partners with other non-profit disability groups and companies to give our constituents a range of accessible activities and programs.


The mission of the Spina Bifida Association of North Texas (SBANT) is to build a better and brighter future for those impacted by Spina Bifida.


The vision of the Spina Bifida Association of North Texas (SBANT) is to make a difference in our community through family and individual services including camps, support programs, outreach programs and informational resources that work to raise awareness of Spina Bifida, while generating funds to change the future of those affected by the neural tube defect. The SBANT is dedicated to bringing the Spina Bifida community together to change the future for all affected.


Our goal is to raise awareness of Spina Bifida and to give children, families and adults the tools that they need to be advocates for themselves, independent and active individuals with Spina Bifida and to have a strong, supportive community.
