Do you like making new friends and talking on the phone? Connect with an older adult in your community through our reassurance calls program.

This program is intended for our care receivers who may live alone, have little or no contact with others on a daily basis, or may have a medical condition that makes them vulnerable. Volunteers are encouraged to call their care receiver/s once a week to check-in. These calls reduce social isolation and reconnect our care receivers to the community.

Through your service you can help Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley enhance the dignity and quality of life for all people in our community, neighbor to neighbor.
