The Family Retreat Effect

For families affected by disability, Joni and Friends Family Retreat becomes a place of respite and acceptance.  In many cases, it becomes the highlight of the year for both families and volunteers. The atmosphere of Family Retreat is just… life changing.  

At Retreat, families with disability find community, receive support, and are able to just let down their guard knowing that they are fully accepted and fully loved! Parents can rest easy as they see their kids are loved and cared for by an STM (short term missionary). They also see their children’s confidence and love of Christ grow as they are able to participate in every activity and lesson. 

So, whether you’re a family looking for a retreat near you or a volunteer wanting to share Christ’s love with others – apply today!
