Interfaith Caregivers serves to help seniors and adults with disabilities in Polk County, Wisconsin. We coordinate volunteers to help our clients so they can live in their homes for as long as possible. In 1992, this idea began with help from the state of Wisconsin and Polk County Aging Department. A taskforce was established with the purpose to find a way to fill the "gaps" in service needs within our community. In 1995, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation awarded the taskforce a $25,000 grant. Interfaith Caregivers was born.
Today we serve over 500 clients in our community. Helping with a variety of services from a ride to an appointment to a phone call to check in on a neighbor. We are fueled by a volunteer group made up for neighbors from our community. They come from churches, local organizations, schools, and individuals who just want to be a neighbor helping another neighbor.
