Mission founder, Ewing W. Mays, a double amputee, found very quickly the loneliness and isolation felt by those in rehabilitation hospitals. Soon after his adjustment to civilian life, he started touring the U.S. visiting wounded GI's - demonstrating what could be done and accomplished walking on two artificial limbs.
Representatives from Mays Mission visit nursing homes through out the country. Our dream is to bring hope and encouragement to residents and patients in these facilities. "Gift Paks" of stationery items (pads, cards, envelopes, stickers and a ball point pen) are assembled by people with disabilities at Mays Mission and distributed to each facility visited - free of charge.
If you would like the Mays Mission team to consider visiting a facility in your area, please contact us at the address below. We will get back with you as soon as possible!
