What Is Faith In Action?
Williamsburg Area Faith In Action (WFIA) is a non-profit that fosters caring relationships between volunteers and seniors age 60 and older.
Faith In Action’s mission is to help senior adults age safely in their homes by providing transportation and other volunteer support services. We do this in Williamsburg, James City County and the Bruton District of York County. WFIA assists by providing transportation, shopping, caregiver support, assistance with household chores, one-on-one visits, daily well-check calls, friendly phone visits, and light yard work.
Assessment of Need
WFIA addresses two issues
- The desire of the seniors to age safely in their own homes without becoming a burden.
- There is a pool of talented volunteers among retirees and faith-based communities. WFIA provides ready-made opportunities to channel these volunteers into providing needed services.
