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 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 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 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.
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!
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 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.
