Interfaith Senior Programs is a faith-based, community-centered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization serving Waukesha County, Wisconsin. The mission of Interfaith Senior Programs, Inc., founded in 1981, is to help older adults, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers live dignified, meaningful, and engaged lives in the community while maintaining their independence for as long as possible.
Our programs reduce isolation for older adults and mobilize volunteers to make important contributions to community needs. The agency is the result of a successful 2007 merger between RSVP of Waukesha County started in Waukesha County in 1977, and Interfaith Caregiving Network incorporated in 1991.
Collectively the agency brings more than 54 years of experience to the community, serves over 1,000 seniors and adults with disabilities each year, and coordinates more than 2,300 volunteers.
RSVP volunteers respond to critical needs in Waukesha County including nutrition, housing, transportation, education, healthcare, and social isolation. Each year RSVP volunteers provide approximately 25,000 hours of service to 19 schools and 23 government and nonprofit organizations.
Faith In Action services are provided to seniors (60+) and adults (18+) with disabilities to assist in maintaining independent living. Transportation is the most requested service, and the program coordinates approximately 4,500 rides to doctor appointments and food pantries each year.
