“Our Mission is to facilitate the caring of people in rural communities throughout Stearns County by helping communities be aware of persons in need and help them to respond.”
Rural Stearns Faith In Action serves our communities by making connections between those who need some assistance and those who are able to provide the services. Our volunteers assist individuals 60 and older with a wide variety of activities from transportation to homemaking.
Our professional staff help those same individuals with ways to remain independent in their homes or apartments longer by finding resources tailored to each person. Sometimes the focus is put on the caregiver and at other times the person needing assistance. By providing that level of support, appropriate decisions can be made in maintaining a healthy level of independence. Our professional staff have training in social work, nursing, chaplaincy and volunteer coordination. We have a bilingual (Spanish) consultant who offers similar services.
While Faith in Action programs can be found throughout the country, we concentrate on much of Rural Stearns County; our communities we serve include Sauk Centre to St. Joseph, Brooten to Kimball and the St. Cloud metro area. If we don’t serve your area we can connect you with those who can.
