ELIGIBILITY

Faith in Action provides free services to older adults (60+) in Kanawha or Putnam counties in West Virginia. There are no income eligibility requirements. Our care receivers are served by volunteers who give their time and talents to enhance the quality of life for our neighbors.

Our ability to fill any request is dependent upon the availability of volunteer caregivers on the day and time requested. There may be times when we are unable to fill a request.

Faith in Action provides transportation for our elder neighbors. Volunteers are not able to transport individuals who need to get to their places of employment, or to run miscellaneous errands. Faith in Action does not own a wheelchair lift van. Volunteers use their personal vehicles and are not able to transport individuals who cannot get themselves into and out of a car on their own.
