Hearts and Hands: Faith in Action (HHFIA) is a non-proselytizing faith and community based volunteer organization providing non-medical support services to seniors and the disabled in underserved communities of Erie County. We are currently serving the Akron, Newstead, Clarence, Alden, Wales, Marilla, Holland, and the Tonawanda Indian Reservation communities. Our program is a best efforts and no charge delivery of services. Our trained volunteers provide friendly companion visits, 'Phone Pal' safety calls, house keeping and lawn care, and minor handyman services. They also provide door through door transportation for medical appointments and for other errands. Our focus is on services that enhance nutritional status, foster socialization, increase physical activity, and provide access to medical, dental and other health services. If we cannot provide a requested service, we will refer that request to an agency that is able to meet the need. We work closely with the Alzheimer Association, Meals on Wheels, the Erie Co. Dept. of Senior Services, the local first responders and other area service providers.
Mission: Hearts and Hands: Faith in Action connects older Americans, those with health concerns, and their care givers in underserved communities with trained volunteers to uphold their dignity to improve quality of life to enhance their ability to live in their home of choice.
