Serving people affected by disability since 1979

Who is Joni and Friends?

Worldwide, one in every seven people lives with a disability. In many nations, these people and their families face crushing poverty, social stigma, and isolation. They lack so much – even wheelchairs. At Joni and Friends, we are keenly aware we must do all we can to reach the world’s disability community with the Gospel of Christ, and to serve them with practical help. That’s why, for over 35 years, we have partnered with you to fulfill Christ’s mandate from Luke 14 to go out, find the disabled, the lame and the blind, and bring them in so that the Father’s house might be full.
