As a 72 year old grandma with disabled grandson, I had hard time getting him in and out of my auto. This foundation made a dream come true. He climbs in his chair and off we go. After 10 years of searching for help this foundation came forward. Cudos to these folks for making transporting Dillon easier. Carolyn Patten
JTTF provided us with a chair my son desperately needed for feeding and interaction with family. Insurance would not cover it and it's not something we would have ever been able to afford.
My son was born with a congenital heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left-Heart Syndrome, which requires him to be in constant need of several medications and doctor visits, just to survive. When our family were faced with the possibility of loosing his insurance, JT Townsend stepped in and helped us get things straighted out, and all of our worries suddleny disappeared. They are truly a God send and I could never thank them enough for what they did for me and my little man.
Amazingly generous and caring Foundation. My disabled son's quality of life has been changed for the better because of their kindness!

Has truly been a blessing to our family and our sons special needs. They were able to provide remaining payment after insurance on a much needed medical stroller and bath chair. It has made our life a little easier getting our boy around and bathed. A great foundation who has a passion to help those in need and keep their sons memory alive.
My child was in need of an activity chair and I received quick response , great customer service, and communication. We received her chair within a month if not sooner. This chair has came in hand and I am thankful and happy that JTTF was able to be here for my family in our time of need. Thank you JT!
I found J T's foundation on the web while trying to find help to get a new manual wheelchair.
I have cerebral palsy and my insurance would not help me but JT's foundation did. His foundation serves the underserved and under represented. Not only those in the disabled community but anyone who was blessed to know, meet, or talk with him understood how important this foundation and the people it served were to him.
Even in his absence his legacy lives on in the hearts and efforts of those whose love, work, and service perpetuates what JT envisioned his foundation to be.
The JT Townsend foundation helped my family when we needed it most. My husband is a paraplegic. He was hospitalized and I missed a lot of work to stay with him. We were close to losing our home. I reached out to Judy who was kind and compassionate. Not only did the foundation pay our rent for the month, they also gave us a little extra for groceries. I am forever grateful to them!
The JTTF helped me when my husband who suffers from a spinal chord injury was sick. He was in the hospital last year for nearly 4 months making me miss a lot of work. I had no idea how I was going to pay my rent for the month. A friend of mine suggested JTTF. I emailed them and heard back from Judy. Not only did they pay my whole rent amount for the month, they also gave me enough to get groceries for the month. I would have never made it through that time without them.
JT Townsend helped us in a time if need for a new wheelchair for my daughter. They donated above and beyond my expectations. Kelly was instrumental in her communication and listening to out needs!
