Towanda Expansion

As of Wednesday March 18th, 2015 Faith in Action will be providing services to those in the Towanda area. Same guidelines apply: Must be 60 years or over, reside in Towanda and have an in-home assessment done before we can provide services. We currently have a limited number of volunteers who are willing to serve Towanda and we will be accepting care receivers on a first come first serve basis.
