Faith in Action Caregivers provides many opportunities for individuals to put their faith into action by making a difference in the quality of life for our older adult and disabled neighbors. Volunteers can give as little as an hour or two a week in service to others.

Regardless of the amount of time you have to give in service to others, there are many opportunities to use your gifts and talents.
