Driven by Faith, United in Purpose
Several local congregations are partners in our mission to help older adults live independently in our community. In 1999, with grants from the Community Memorial Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Faith in Action) members of the seven founding churches formed Interfaith Community Partners to better meet the needs of older adults in the Greater Lyons Township. At this time, there are 156 volunteers (including 115 drivers), one full-time and five part-time staff members, as well as office volunteers who serve over 313 residents of the Lyons, south Proviso, and Riverside Townships. Services are expanding to Clarendon Hills, Darien, Downers Grove, Summit, Westmont, and Willowbrook.
