FAITH IN ACTION CAREGIVERS INC
February 7, 2011

Faith in Action Caregivers of Wheeling/ Ohio Valley performs a very valuable service. Many older and disabled people in our community are often able to continue to live independently at home with just a little help, like transportation to doctor's appointments, grocery shopping or friendly visits. This is the type of services that FIAC provides. Dedicated, compassionate and talented staff members match volunteers with care receivers. An incredible amount of work is done toward supporting older and disabled people on a very small budget. Donors can be assured that their contributions go to help those most in need with a minimum of overhead. Volunteers are trained and screened. Care receivers are enthusiastically appreciative! I only wish a service like this were available in the community where my elderly mother lives. I would not hestitate to recommend Faith in Action Caregivers of Wheeling/ Ohio Valley.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the number of care receivers and volunteers grow dramatically every year.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

love to see more fiinancial support from donors and grants to free our staff from having to give so much attention to fund raising!

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I serve on the Board and occasionally volunteer by providing transportation. .
