   Shiawassee County is one of only a few fortunate counties that have a Faith-in-Action Respite program available to residents. Volunteers help adults with persistent health needs and their family caregivers, providing friendly visits and respite to family caregivers. Elderly are able to remain living safely in their own home knowing that Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee will check in on the person and provide friendly visits. The volunteers usually live in the same community and share the same interests as the person they are visiting.

   Volunteers only need to attend one training session. Training sessions can be scheduled at a mutually convenient time. To register for a training session, please contact the Respite Volunteers of Shiawassee office, (989) 725-1127.

   For more information about our services, please see our website,, and for many photos of the golf scramble, please see our social media page.
