Faith in Action Volunteers

We are lucky to enjoy our lives and relationships longer than ever before. However, the expanding life expectancy and a steadily growing older adult population presents serious personal and public health concerns.Navigating housing arrangements, physical and mental health, nutrition, and quality of life in a cost effective way are lofty opportunities.Our community members, regardless of age, have the skills and tools necessary to be a part of the solution. Faith in Action empowers people 60+ to be active, engaged and involved in their community by mobilizing a network of volunteers to provide free inclusive programming & care partnerships.
