Our Mission

Wisconsin InterFaith in Action is a statewide membership program supporting interfaith volunteer caregiver programs throughout Wisconsin. We provide support to local programs working throughout Wisconsin to help elderly and disabled neighbors in need. Each agency adheres to five building blocks: Interfaith, Volunteer Based, Caregiving, Long Term Health Needs, and Home Based.

WIFIAN is a growing community of interfaith volunteer caregivers with diverse missions and one unified goal – to provide compassionate and caring assistance to the frail elderly, chronically ill and disabled adults on a non-profit basis.

Building Blocks

While each of our Programs is unique, each Member adheres to the original building blocks laid out by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

This means that each of our programs is based on the following:

Interfaith:

Our Programs accept and embrace Volunteers and Care Recipients from any background.

Volunteer Based:

Volunteers provide direct services at no cost to clients.

Caregiving:

Services are neighborly type services; non-professional and non-medical
in nature.  Basically anything a neighbor can do for a neighbor.

Long Term Health Needs:

Our Programs serve populations dealing with long term health
concerns.

Home Based:

Clients are served in their home environment.

All services are provided by caring volunteers at no cost to the client.
