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!
This idea began in 1992 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 and Interfaith Caregivers was born.
Today Interfaith Helps 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 of neighbors from our community. They are members of churches, local organizations, and schools, or individuals who just want to be a neighbor helping another neighbor.
