Faith in Action to change name May 1

CRYSTAL LAKE – About a year ago, the Faith in Action Board of Directors began to discuss changing the name from Faith in Action to a new name that more accurately represents the program and services.

Research and surveys were conducted, and results revealed the name Faith in Action did not adequately convey the agency's mission to serve seniors and their families, according to a news release from the agency.

The board ultimately decided that Senior Care Volunteer Network precisely describes the program. The name change will be effective May 1.

The board is confident the new name will attract more volunteers to the nonprofit agency, which has been serving the community for 15 years, and reach seniors who are searching for the kinds of services the agency offers.

The mission, no-cost services for seniors, office location and phone number will remain the same, according to the release.
