Volunteers with Faith in Action for Cass County are forming community teams to better support their communities and support Faith in Action volunteer services.
Volunteer teams will connect by phone and eventually meet in person to visit and share about needs in their communities and how to best meet those needs.
A locally supported nonprofit organization, Faith in Action for Cass County coordinates volunteers who provide non-medical, neighborly assistance to seniors, people with disabilities and people in need throughout Cass County.
Faith in Action volunteers help with transportation, friendly visiting, respite for caregivers, light homemaking and chores, basic home repair and they also build accessibility ramps.
Volunteer team leaders or co-leaders are needed in Walker, Hackensack, Longville, Cass Lake, Pillager and Lake Shore/East Gull Lake. The role will be different for each community based on existing resources and local needs, but may include facilitating gatherings in person, by phone or online, acting as a Faith in Action spokesperson, advocating for community needs and being a Faith in Action contact for a community.
This is a volunteer position and training and mentoring is provided. Volunteers receive scheduling coordination, liability insurance, mileage reimbursement, recognition and more.
“It’s all about making new friends and the smiles and joy of helping others,” the release stated.
