Donations support volunteer services to the elderly, disabled & families in crisis. FIACC helps people remain independent & at home.


Faith in Action for Cass County is making a difference in rural MN. In 2020, FIACC coordinated 104 volunteers serving over 336 people in need in Cass County, primarily the elderly, disabled and families in crisis. FIACC volunteers have logged over 10,900 hours in service and driven over 125,500 miles. Faith in Action volunteers serve others by providing friendly visits, homemaking, chores, caregiver respite, meal delivery, home repair, ramp building, and transportation to medical appointments, grocery store, food shelf or other errands. Faith in Action is “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Since Cass County has no public hospitals, a visit to a specialist or an appointment for a procedure can mean a 1-hour drive each way. Rural MN sees much isolation for the elderly and people who are home-bound. Without good "neighbors", people often don't get the help they need. "Your drivers are so courteous and helpful and I appreciate this very much." said one 90-year old woman. Another woman wrote, "Thank you for your volunteer. I am blessed to have him come and mow my yard." A disabled couple wrote, "Thanks for the wonderful help. It was the best work possible ever." Faith in Action is a grassroots, volunteer non-profit organization with a small budget and 2 part-time staff. We rely on grants, fundraisers, and local support. Donations go to pay for the expenses necessary to manage the volunteer program, including liability insurance, background checks, communication, and mileage reimbursement. Faith in Action for Cass County is "Compassionate Volunteers Serving People in Need".
