“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
—Lauren DeStefano, “Wither.”
Who We Are
Experienced and Supportive
In Fremont County and Southwest Iowa Faith in Action's projects are developed to support a community where all residents may live independently with dignity.
Registered as a 501c3 charitable organization, in 2005 Faith in Action offered transportation services and expanded a health equipment loan program.
Both the Taxi Service and H.E.L.P. (Health Equipment Loan Program) continue to grow, and over the years volunteers and residents county-wide have initiated other projects. Our TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return Program) is appreciated and we plan to keep going as funds allow. Some of our staff and volunteers work with others on housing and local food production as the opportunities arise.
Our Advisors represent Southwest Iowa social service agencies, county and town boards, medical service providers, the schools and the court system .
Faith in Action is funded with small grants, reasonable fees for the TNR and medical equipment services, and with tax deductible donations to the local 501c3 charitable organization.
We provide Non-Emergency Medical Transportation for Medicaid members and the public in Southwest Iowa. Certifications for our Taxi Vans and drivers are thorough and renewed annually.
Our Taxi Service is self-supporting with a Medicaid contract and subsidies from SWITA, the regional Transit Authority.
Anyone can call our dispatcher or stop in the office to schedule non_Medicaid rides. Essential Shopping or business trips can be arranged. We're glad to take individuals or small groups on outings or to special events.
Just call to work out the details!
Trap / Neuter / Return Program
One of several projects of community concern, assistance with spay/neuter and vaccination of free-roaming cats remains a need. We trap and transport "community cats" to several low-cost S/N clinics in our area.
