Who We Are

IVC logo

Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers of Magic Valley, Inc. ~ A Faith in Action Program  is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization  that provides volunteer assistance to the elderly, frail, chronically ill, and disabled.  IVC also provides respite care for their homebound caregivers. Our goal is to help people live independently and with dignity in their own homes as long as possible. IVC serves as a safety net for other community agencies and organizations by catching those who do not meet the criteria for those agencies. Our services enrich the human spirit, alleviate human suffering, and help build stronger communities one life at a time.

IVC is operated in Twin Falls, Idaho.  We recruit and register volunteers from local faith congregations, businesses, agencies and individuals in our 4-county service area consisting of Twin Falls, Lincoln, Gooding, and Jerome.  The assistance we provide is nonmedical and includes a variety of home care and chore services, and is at no charge to the care-receiver.  Training is provided to volunteers, as well as liability insurance.

NATIONAL PICTURE

Currently, over 1,063 Faith in Action programs exist nationwide, with 3 of those member agencies serving in Idaho. For over 20 years, Faith in Action’s model of caregiving has been proven across the country to be very effective, and is making a positive difference here in the Magic Valley.
