Joni and Friends Family Retreat - Multiple Locations

Joni and Friends - multiple locations

This is a unique opportunity to make a difference in the life of a family affected by disability. Joni and Friends Family Retreat is a one-week vacation experience for these families. Each volunteer is paired with a disabled child or adult to simply be a friend and participate together in program activities. As you serve, you'll have the opportunity to build relationships where you can help others find hope in Jesus. Every volunteer is fully trained before the retreat begins. Ongoing support from experienced leaders is available throughout the retreat.
