Everyone needs help at some time during the life cycle. Some people are fortunate enough to have family and friends to turn to when they need help.  Others, for a variety of reasons, do not have a strong social support network. This is when the resources and volunteers of Faith in Action come into play. We are the human face of our communities and congregations, working in concert with local social service agencies.  We provide the personalized touches that professional agencies may not be able to provide.

The neighbors who turn to SELCFIA find generous souls willing to open their hearts: people who care; people who invest time and effort in their well-being. The volunteers make the journey through life a bit easier. Trained, supervised and insured, they can also liaise with social services that are available locally, keeping our care recipients involved with the community. As one of our first volunteers, Paula Allen, says, “Somehow, the volunteer and care recipient find the right persons in each other. It’s magical how FIA matches us up.”

If you need help or know someone in the community who needs help, call us at (847) 433-9411 to request a volunteer. If you have to leave a message, we will call back within 24 hours.
