About Us

Mission: Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County (ICGMC) is dedicated to promoting the independence and dignity of homebound elderly and people with disabilities by matching them with caring volunteers who assist with the tasks of everyday life.

Description: Interfaith Caregivers of Mercer County is a coalition of 28 Mercer County-based congregations of various denominations.  The congregations are the primary source of Interfaith volunteers.  However, it is not necessary for a volunteer to belong to a member congregation.   Our dedicated volunteers provide free services, such as transportation to doctors’ offices, grocery shopping, friendly visiting, respite care, light housekeeping, telephone reassurance, occasional meal preparation, indoor/outdoor chores, minor home repairs and other assistance to our area's most vulnerable citizens. In addition to services to the home-bound elderly and people with disabilities, ICGMC volunteers also participate in conducting  “Project Healthy Bones” a 24-week peer-led education and exercise program, for those with, or at risk for, osteoporosis.
