Restoring Wheelchairs and Hearts Through Prison Outreach

The Joni and Friends Wheels for the World program provides life-changing mobility and the hope of the Gospel to people living with disability worldwide. They collect used, manual wheelchairs across the United States that would otherwise end up in landfills. The wheelchair restoration process begins in federal, state, and private correctional facilities where inmates are trained to restore wheelchairs to like-new condition. At every step, the Wheels for the World program is designed to put the love of Jesus on display in an impactful way. From collection to restoration, to distribution, lives are being changed.
