_______FAITH IN ACTION________

 

"The surest cure for lonliness, the quickest way to happiness, is found in this, a simple creed: Go serve someone in greater need."                                                                                                                                                                   - William Arthur Ward

 

 

DECCF recruits, trains, places and supervises volunteers who assist individuals and families affected by chronic disease, disability, frailty or victimization.

 

Our Volunteer Caregivers help keep many chronically ill, disabled and elderly Delawareans independent by providing the following services:

  • Transportation to doctor appointments
  • Running errands
  • Homemaking assistance
  • Respite care
  • Lay counseling
  • Befriending

* Services are provided free of charge to our clients

 

Faith In Action volunteers are persons of various ages, faiths, and backgrounds who care about others. They are generous, caring people with a genuine concern for those with special needs and the elderly. Our volunteers are carefully screened, trained, and supervised to provide friendly, caring, and compassionate services. They give their time and energy to lend a helping hand to make life better for their neighbors.
