Mission Statement

Faith in Action of Johnstown is an interfaith volunteer caregiving program. We invite neighbors of every faith to work together to help our elderly and vulnerable neighbors maintain their independence and stay in their own homes. All volunteers receive the necessary training to provide non-medical services to the elderly--the kind of everyday chores that we all take for granted that become more difficult with age. Something as simple as changing a lightbulb, offering to grocery shop, or providing transportation to a doctor appointment can make all the difference.
