All year long, families affected by disability live on the edge of exhaustion: sleepless nights, endless medical appointments, dreary routines, and financial pressures. Isolation and weariness cause so much discouragement and hopelessness for these families.

Special needs families desperately need a place where they can let down their guard and breathe in God’s renewing presence. They need a safe haven where they can receive spiritual encouragement and have heart-to-heart connections with others who experience the same things they do. And that’s exactly what happens at Family Retreat.

Families experience a safe and confidential environment in which they can open their hearts and share from deep within, and they experience worship, Bible teaching, and rich fellowship with other families who understand the daily pressures of living with a disability. At Family Retreat, families are guided into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through the hope of the Gospel.

And friend, there are countless families waiting for a scholarship that will open the door to attend a Joni and Friends Family Retreat this summer. For many, a scholarship for the family member with a disability will make all the difference. And you can help us make it happen! We invite you to join us today in providing rest and restoration in Jesus for families affected by disability.

Provide a Scholarship Today!

God is so good! Jessica’s comment is an encouragement to me. I’m blessed His son, Jesus was sent to be a sacrifice for sin, for us who believe..... I can pray and thank Him for His Provision and His children. Joni and friends have His promises and one day Jesus is coming back in the clouds as the Bible says and we will meet Him in the air...with our bodies anew...and in a flash the devil will be destroyed. - Sharon
