To provide assistance and ongoing support to Rolling In Faith

This fund has been established to support the program activities of Rolling In Faith. Rolling in Faith was founded by Hadley Stephens as a blog discussing the intersectionality of the Christian Church and people with disabilities. As a person born with a disability, Stephens wrote about her own experiences in this space, and through that lens offered a unique insight into the often-overlooked needs of individuals with disabilities in faith communities and beyond.

Individuals with disabilities are a group that are overlooked and undervalued in every single sector, by no fault of their own. However, this is not an indication that individuals with disabilities should be pitied. It is quite the opposite; individuals with disabilities are required to adapt and overcome and fit the molds of a society that doesn’t have a place for them forming skills and attitudes that are invaluable.

It is from this perspective that Rolling in Faith was born – a desire to serve persons with disability with the dignity and excellence that they deserve, to see and meet their unique challenges from the perspective of someone who has experienced them herself.
