Serving Seniors and Adults with Disabilities

Since 1994, Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County has helped underserved, homebound seniors, and adults with disabilities to age in their homes, with independence and dignity. Our caregiving and wellness services are provided by a dedicated group of volunteers who are recruited, trained, and managed by Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County and in cooperation with our interdenominational coalition. It is a safety net of support for the most vulnerable among us.

During the Covid-19 pandemic our services are needed more than ever.  Our volunteers reach out to their care receivers to ensure they have access to everything they need including: food, medication, and transportation to medical appointments while practicing social distancing and following safety guidelines. Our staff and leadership have been working from home, finding new ways to reach out to all we serve.

Join Our Network of Volunteers

We are looking for compassionate adults, 18 years and older, with a positive attitude, willing to help people in need in their community.

Interfaith Caregivers volunteers provide simple services like grocery shopping, giving a ride to a doctor’s appointment, a friendly in-person or virtual visit, or helping with small household chores.

These tasks may seem small, but they are essential for those with decreasing mobility or physical limits due to their disability.  Volunteer caregiving enables our elderly neighbors to live independently and have a profound effect on both the care receiver and the volunteer.

There are numerous volunteer opportunities available in our network. We believe that you can find one that you would enjoy.
