FIA National Network & Background

Faith in Action is a network of interfaith, volunteer caregiving service providers with hundreds of locations throughout the United States. Initiated by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, its purpose was to provide start-up monies to create community volunteer programs to serve individuals who are isolated and  homebound due to age or disability.  During 1993-1999, the Foundation funded over 1,000 Faith in Action programs nationwide. In 1996, Faith in Action Volunteers became a program of the Broome County Council of Churches.  In 2011, the Faith in Action National Network changed names to become the National Volunteer Caregiving Network (NVCN)
