What We Do

We share the hope of the Gospel and give practical help to people impacted by disability worldwide. We've been changing the church and communities around the globe for the past 40 years.

Nearly 1 billion people around the world live with disabilities.

Many of these individuals and their families live in poverty, pain, and despair. We want to change this. Joni and Friends is committed to bringing the Gospel and practical assistance to those impacted by disability around the globe. 

For the past 40 years, it has been our mission to present the hope of the Gospel to people affected by disability and their families through our programs and outreaches around the world. We energize the church, moving people from lack of awareness to including everyone into the fabric of worship, fellowship, and outreach. We also train and mentor people with disability to exercise their gifts of leadership and service in their churches and communities.  

Our Vision: to accelerate Christian ministry in the disability community.
