Faith in Action

The Foundation's program, Faith in Action®, was designed to expand the continued replication of the Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers Model, providing volunteer caregiving to people of all ages with chronic health conditions.This grant represents a transfer of funds from Catholic Charities to Faith in Action (FIA) of Central Lakeland, Inc. When Catholic Charities decided they would no longer be a parent organization, FIA of Central Lakeland met with community leaders and board members, and unanimously responded to continue Faith in Action in the urban Lakeland area for the frail elderly of the community. Services include friendly visiting, household chores, telephone reassurance, and taking care receivers out to attend community events.
