Strengthening our communities by expressing our faith in action through professional and volunteer services to help meet the needs of body, mind and spirit, of the aging and families in need, the poor, sick or disabled—and those who care for them. So they can live independently and self-sufficiently, with dignity and quality of life.
As a faith-based agency, Great River Area Faith in Action provides an opportunity for people to live their faith by serving others.
Our multidisciplinary team works alongside hundreds of volunteers from many different congregations and the community to meet the needs of the whole person. We reach out to people who are finding life difficult because of age, disability, or life circumstance and through the context of supportive and loving relationships help others to maintain their independence. As we share our life and our stories we convey the faith that is in our hearts.
The goal of our services are to empower and educate our clients to make choices that will help them to remain living independently and safely. They are not intended to replace the traditional role of family caregivers nor do we desire to do for others what they are capable of doing for themselves. We work to support families as they care for their loved ones and, whenever possible, to empower people to assume personal responsibility.
We serve people in need, regardless of age, nationality, gender or creed, to enable them to maintain their human dignity and the greatest possible level of independence.

We seek to make sure our HEARTS are in the right place while serving others and our communities. As a result, at Faith in Action we place high value on:
