Faith In Action
Faith In Action is a service that matches volunteer community members with senior citizens to provide a variety of assistive services to help seniors live independently.
What Do We Do?
Faith In Action recruits volunteers to assist senior citizens with a range of support services designed to help seniors remain living independently in their own homes.
Who Do We Serve?
Our program serves adults living independently in Ashland and Bayfield Counties who are 60 years of age or older, regardless of race, religious belief, or economic status. Faith In Action fills the gap for elderly people who could remain in their homes with just a little help from great people like you!
Faith In Action volunteers are generous, caring people who want to give their time and talents to assist the elderly. They are men, women, and young people from all walks of life. Groups interested in community service find opportunities through Faith In Action. The program works to match each volunteer with a situation that suits his/her interests, abilities, and availability.
