TEDDY AND JOAN PENDERGRASS FOUNDATION
R&B superstar and legendary stage performer
In 1982 Teddy Pendergrass became a quadriplegic as a result of an automobile accident. He was left paralyzed from his chest down. Teddy spent the years following the accident driven by a desire to make a difference in the lives of others with spinal cord injuries (SCI).
Through the generosity of people like you our work can make a difference to millions of people around the world.
Your gift to Teddy and Joan Pendergrass Foundation is a contribution to life, hope and possibility.
A spinal cord injury changes a person’s life; it doesn’t end it. There are meaningful employment and educational opportunities for people with SCI and an array of programs designed to help them move ahead. The trick is knowing where to find them.
Statistics tell us there are more than 43 million Americans living with disabilities. Of that number, 66% are unemployed. The vast majority live with no financial support other than their government subsidy checks.
The Teddy and Joan Pendergrass Foundation brings together the resources people need to re-connect with life. Sometimes it’s just an understanding ear or simply a word of inspiration.
Whether you’re looking for help, or have some help to give, we’d like to hear from you.
