About Senior Care Volunteer Network

Senior Care Volunteer Network (formerly Faith in Action) is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization that serves all seniors, age 60 and older, who live at home or with a loved one in McHenry County and Sun City, Huntley. Our mission is to help these seniors remain independent and at home for as long and as safely as possible. We are able to accomplish our mission through our dedicated volunteers who provide a number of valuable services, all at absolutely no charge to the senior or their family members.
Services provided include transportation to life essential and life enriching destinations, friendly visits, respite relief to caregivers, yard work and minor home repairs. Senior Care Volunteer Network also provides a lending closet for durable medical equipment and delivery of incontinence products.
Volunteers set their own schedule and decide what days and how many hours they can help. In addition to hands-on opportunities assisting seniors in need, we also utilize the skills of volunteers in our office and for special events such as fundraising or expos.
