Our History

Our History

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.
