Non-Profits: Faith in Action Caregivers

AUSTIN, TEXAS - Faith in Action Caregivers (FIAC) is a non-profit organization that helps seniors in the Austin, Texas Metro Area stay independent through services such as transportation, information and referrals, friendly visits, medical equipment loans, and minor home repairs. Transportation is a key component of the services that FIAC provides. Volunteer drivers provide personal transport for medical appointments, as well as person business and shopping trips. Since it's beginnings in 1985 from a single location, it has expanded to a number of communities throughout the Greater Austin Area. Their success in providing free transportation for seniors has led community groups in San Antonio to model their programs on FIAC. See: Groups Teaming Up to Offer Free Rides for Seniors. The following video featuring the Executive Director of Faith in Action Caregivers, was produced by the I Live Here, I Give Here campaign for philanthropy in Austin.
