Joni and Friends

Author and artist Joni Eareckson Tada, who is also a quadriplegic, began a ministry to people with disabilities about thirty years ago and thousands of people have been helped by Joni and Friends (aka JAF) over the years.
Among other things, the organization educates churches about how to help people with special needs, collects and donates used wheelchairs to people in other countries who can't get them otherwise through their Wheels for the World program, and runs camps for children with disabilities. They have local offices in many parts of the country and are available to share information about resources there and online. Those are only a few of the things Joni and Friends offers.
