In December 2017 Jeremy Calkins, Founder of The Sofia Foundation, met Sofia and his life has never been the same. Her incredible personality and their instant bond forged a new direction for Jeremy Calkins, one with great purpose and passion.
Shortly after, Jeremy learned of a young boy with cerebral palsy living in Honduras. Due to his circumstances, medical equipment was unavailable and so most of his life was spent homebound. As God stirred their hearts, Jeremy and Victoria Jones collaborated and experienced the great privilege of providing a wheelchair to this young boy in Honduras. And the birth of this DO SOMETHING organization resulted because there is so much more Kingdom work to be done!
Our passion is to help as many people as possible who are affected by CP, while also spreading a message of love and inclusivity.
