Faith in Action provides the elderly with drivers to help them remain independent and a vital part of their community by providing rides to doctor appointments and medical treatments, the grocery store and access to conduct their personal affairs.

We continue to operate our Faith In Action senior outreach program because the elderly and medically fragile need us now more than ever. We’re making sure they have groceries and prescriptions delivered to them and are taking them to necessary medical appointments. If you, a family member or neighbor who would benefit from this service, please email to get connected. We’d like to leverage our entire Y community in the effort to help our friends and neighbors.

Annually, Faith in Action provides approximately 1,300 rides annually to elderly citizens in the Sewickley Valley through a network of volunteer drivers. Faith in Action began in 2002 as a community outreach program at the Sewickley Valley YMCA, and now is a program jointly supported through a partnership between the Y and Heritage Valley Health System.  

If you’d like to make a gift to Faith in Action or volunteer, please contact Heather Ochman at the YMCA at 412-741-9622 x135 or
