I have helped by picking up wheelchairs that people donate. Through the Roof accepts all kinds of equipment and medical supplies. They fix them and have a loaner program and also send these to other countries. The people that donate often need encouragement and I can help in this way. I am thankful I have a truck and can volunteer my time now that I am retired.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

encouraging people that donate items for others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more people involved.

I have served with Through the Roof Ministries for a few years collecting mobility equipment. They are an all volunteer run organization and work tirelessly to assist those with disabilities in the local community and internationally. It is awesome to see how this ministry touches the lives of those who give as well as those who receive wheelchairs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In their dedication to serving others in need here in the US and internationally.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not make changes. Just help them grow to meet more needs.

I have participated on wheelchair seating mission trips to Honduras for the past 3 years. TTRM is excellent in organizing, teaching, training its volunteers from all over the US and in Honduras. The emphasis on involving the local Hondurans in training and continuing the mission throughout the year is empowering to the people we go to serve. We may be there for one week but the program endures throughout the year. God is glorified through this ministry.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Honduras.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

allow it to grow as God desires.

I have volunteered with Through the Roof mostly helping the administrative staff, and also participated in some of the Fellowship of Friends social events. This really is a caring organization who want to help people affected by disability and share the love of Jesus with them, to spread the Gospel message to those who haven't heard, and to strengthen believers to live their faith. I have enjoyed hearing the inspirational results of their local and international outreach. And I have been blessed by serving in this ministry.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting people affected by disability and seeing them as people, benefited from prayers and encouragement of the staff in a time of my own medical crisis, saw the blessing a friend received from Devotional materials sent to her by this organization when she was discouraged with severe health problems.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'm not sure what changes I would make. That is not my area of skill, but I would want more people to get involved so the blessings can be multiplied.

Through the Roof Ministries collects, repairs and delivers mobility equipment, like wheelchairs and walkers, to Haiti and Central America. Tonight I helped them load a truck for Haiti. God says we should love our neighbor as our self and they are a great example of this!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Meeting the needs of those with disabilities in developing countries and here in the US.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find someone to donate more warehouse space in NE Ohio.

Through the Roof Ministries has a baby bundle outreach. Picture a young mother who just received the news her newborn infant has a disability. With no money, no resources, and no help, hope seems a world away. And then the door opens and in walks someone with a brightly wrapped “baby bundle” filled with special gifts to help care for that new life. But most importantly, the bundle opens the door for the gospel of Jesus to be shared and for the family to be connected to a local church.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Finding unique ways to reach out and encourage people with disabilities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

share more with others so they would have more volunteers to make an even bigger impact in the life of those with disabilities.

I have volunteered with Through the Roof in Central America. They have done so much to help the people with disabilities to be recognized and to get wheelchairs and a Bible. They have worked with us to build ramps into schools and churches. People are so grateful.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping people in Central America they give so we can live better lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

take more people on a mission trip.

It was such a blessing to assist at the Retreat. We toured the Mansfield Bible Walk. Lunch was delicious and the play encouraged and challenged us to live the life God has called us to as Christians.
