The Chanda Plan Foundation

A nonprofit organization


The Chanda Plan Foundation’s mission is to deliver, advocate & educate for integrative therapy, primary care, and other complementary services to reduce health disparities and costs by improving health equity and outcomes for individuals with physical disabilities at the Chanda Center for Health.

Background Statement

31 years ago, the founder and executive director of the Foundation, Chanda Hinton, endured a spinal cord injury leaving her paralyzed at age 9. By the time she entered her early twenties, Chanda’s health was quickly declining. During a meeting with Chanda’s doctor, her sister, a yoga instructor and licensed massage therapist, asked about integrative therapy options. The physician responded, “At this point, do it. Chanda has nothing left to lose.” Within days of receiving integrative therapies, Chanda’s health began to turn around.

As her health improved, Chanda and her family learned more about the lack of access to integrative therapies available to people living with long-term physical disabilities. At that moment, it became Chanda’s personal mission to change this reality.

In 2005, Chanda and her sister, Crystal Hinton, founded the Chanda Plan Foundation, offering integrative therapies through providers in the community, regardless of participants’ ability to pay.

In 2013, Chanda Plan Foundation also began offering these treatments on site at its own facility. These therapies promote wellness and healing, encourage movement, reduce pain, support recovery and improve the overall quality of life for persons living with long-term physical disabilities.

In 2017, after a successful capital campaign, the Chanda Plan Foundation opened the Chanda Center for Health. Under one roof, the Chanda Center for Health sustains wellness as continued care to sustain wellness for those it serves by offering access acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, physical therapy, behavioral health, primary care, dental and care coordination.
