______________________________________________ Uniting Helping Hands with Those In Need

About Us

Faith in Action of the River Cities is a member of the National Volunteer Caregiving Network. 
 

Faith In Action of the River Cities is a faith-based volunteer organization that provides essential non-medial assistance to the elderly and adults with disabilities in our communities. We are supported by a coalition of congregations, community organizations, and agencies. Faith In Action is a provider that “fills the gaps” where agencies and families cannot meet simple daily needs that allow the frail elderly, the chronically ill, and persons with disabilities to live independently. Volunteers care for individuals who have a limited support network.

Faith In Action serves as a link between formal and informal caregiving services, matching those who can help with those who need assistance.
