"Outshining Medical Disabilities"

Our Mission
The Joseph Thomas Foundation assists medically fragile children with the procurement of medical equipment and/or services when other sources are unable to assist.

Thank you for taking time to visit our website. After my son Joseph passed away in August 2007, my family and I made it our mission to carry on his name and memory by starting the Joseph Thomas Foundation to help other medically fragile children. I hope that you will help us by sharing this website and Joseph’s story with others who either need help or wish to help.

John Thomas, President/CEO

From the Beginning

Joseph Thomas Foundation was founded in memory of Joseph Thomas, a 6-year-old who required constant medical care.

The Thomas family knew firsthand the pressures of raising a child with medical needs put on a family—spiritually, emotionally, and financially.

The foundation was established to help relieve some of the burdens for families by funding medical equipment, medical supplies, therapies, and other medical needs.


We want to use our knowledge and experiences as an outreach to help other families in need. We host various events throughout the year for families to experience a safe environment to bring their child and enjoy an outing with minimal barriers.

After 16 years of service, JTF now offers three programs, the Financial Assistance Program, Closet Program and our Ambassador Program to meet the needs of families raising medically fragile and special needs children.

We would be honored to speak and share the foundation with your group, church, civic organization, or class. If you would like a member of our staff to attend a speaking engagement please call our office to schedule a time.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. For more information or to make a donation to the Joseph Thomas Foundation please contact us.

We assist medically fragile children with the procurement of medical equipment and services when others are unable.
