WHO WE ARE
Interfaith Caregivers was started in 1990 by Dr. Joan Gault to meet the needs of isolated senior citizens. Dr. Gault elicited support from Haddonfield churches and community groups, formed a Board of Trustees, and organized the first training session for volunteers. In its first year of operation, Interfaith Caregivers served 80 clients with the help of 62 volunteers. While Interfaith Caregivers has evolved from its grassroots beginnings, the original vision of neighbors helping neighbors through simple kindnesses hasn't changed. From the beginning, Interfaith Caregivers has relied on community support and volunteers to provide basic free-of-charge services; transportation, shopping, and companionship, that enable residents who are aging or disabled to remain independent.
WHAT WE DO
Our goal is to provide simple, yet vital services that enable seniors to maintain their independence.
The trained volunteers at Interfaith Caregivers:
Provide door-to-door transportation to and from medical appointments, stores, senior centers, libraries and other destinations.
Assist clients with vision problems or physical limitations.
Shop or run errands for those who are unable to do so on their own.
