Since 2002, a growing number of caring volunteers and committed community leaders have enabled us to provide needed services for hundreds of area seniors.
The Laurel Faith in Action program addresses the issues of isolation, loneliness and meeting basic needs of our recipients, enabling many to remain in their home.
Partnering with local churches, organizations, and agencies, Faith in Action works to fill the gap between current initiatives and services.
“To enhance the quality of life for persons 60 years and older who reside in Latrobe, Unity Township, Ligonier, Ligonier Township, Derry and Derry Township by providing companionship and assistance.”
Laurel Area Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers, Inc. Faith in Action is a community benefit organization and is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 corporation building a community where we all wish to live, work, raise children, go to school, volunteer and retire with grace and dignity.
A dedicated team of friendly, caring staff oversees daily operations, coordinates program activities and events, and communicates with recipients and volunteers.
A talented and focused volunteer Board of Directors, of 13 members, meets regularly to help oversee and participate in strategic planning and implementation.
An additional Advisory Board offers expertise and support to program management.
