Strengthening Communities…One Caring Relationship at a Time
Measuring the strength of our communities may seem like an abstract notion, or sound more like an evaluation of governmental systems. But at Faith in Action we measure that strength in terms of the vitality of community life. We understand strong communities don’t just happen. It takes a framework of connectedness and a common goal to work for the common good to transform them into more kind and caring places to live.
Faith in Action works to find solutions to the needs in our communities, within our communities. We are a valuable piece of the community puzzle, bringing together formal and informal systems. By collaborating, working with various groups and putting faith into action we’ve learned that strengthening our communities comes from connecting the people who live there. Stronger communities are more caring communities. Places where neighbors care about their neighbor, caring relationships are formed, and we work together to make a difference.
Opportunities to share kindness and make a difference are presented everyday at Faith in Action. Sometimes the smallest act of kindness can make the biggest difference-time spent together, a hug or a listening ear. On other days, that difference can be life-giving…even life-changing. If you desire to make a difference in your life–or in the life of someone else, join us!
Volunteer. Get engaged. Support the mission. Make a difference.
