Walk Right In Ministries appreciates partnerships with organizations and friends who share our passion to come alongside special-needs families and family caregivers of all generations in Christ-centered communities of belonging. 

Will you join this team?

Walk Right In Ministries is a Minneapolis-based 501(c)3 non-profit charity. As an interdenominational ministry, we operate with complete independence from any church. We do, however, have supporting partners who stand with us in vision, prayer and financial partnership. We are grateful to God for donors, corporate sponsors and mission partners who entrust resources to this organization.

Families touched by disability are almost always very stretched financially. People pay only what they are able to pay. When they connect with us to pursue a training, counseling or discipleship, we offer a sliding-fee scale or suggested donation. Ultimately, no one every gets turned away. Our ministry team and those we serve extend a heartfelt thanks to our valued partners who make this possible!

Please consider sharing this mission with us through your own prayers and financial support. You can make a simple donation online or contact us about other creative partnership opportunities.

WRIM is a Ministry Affiliate with Joni & Friends.

Joni and Friends is a ministry dedicated to extending the love and message of Jesus Christ to people who are affected by disability around the world. Their mission is to communicate the Gospel and equip Christ-honoring Churches worldwide to evangelize and disciple people affected by disabilities.

As a Ministry Affiliate, Walk Right In Ministries collaborates with Joni and Friends to minister to people affected by disability in the U.S. and abroad while networking with other like-minded ministries to “accelerate Christian ministry to families affected by disability.”

Joni & Friends was founded in 1979. After a diving accident that left Joni in a quadrapelegic state at 17 years old, she grew determined to reach out and help others. Today, Joni and Friends helps meet the spiritual and practical needs of disabled people and their families including Family Retreats, the distribution of wheelchairs and Bibles worldwide to people affected by disability, and church training through local and national disability ministry conferences.

We are proud to share in the passion and work that Joni Eareckson Tada started. We stand in complete agreement that the Luke 14:12-24 mandate of reaching the millions of people affected by disability is accomplished through the Body of Christ working together.
