  • Faith In Action – Northern Communities Partnership

    71 Depot St, PO Box 515, Lyndonville, VT 05851

    The Lyndonville office of Faith in Action – Northern Communities Partnership serves the needs of our neighbors in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. We bring together volunteers to care for their neighbors who may be isolated, living with chronic health conditions or disabilities, or having difficulty meeting their needs for transportation, socialization, adequate healthy food, winter heating, home repairs or other basic needs.

    We are dedicated in our mission to help our rapidly increasing numbers of needy, elderly and disabled neighbors enjoy safe, healthy, active and independent lives in their own homes and communities. We do this by creating groups of local volunteers in each community led by a local volunteer coordinator to deliver a holistic mix of free, trust building, life enhancing services to their neighbors in need.
