In the mid-1980’s the Robert Wood Foundation initially funded 25 programs of neighbors helping neighbors before beginning a widespread replication of the model in the 1990's. Known then as Faith in Action today there are approximately 650 Faith in Action programs throughout the country and all are linked together by the Faith in Action National Network.

In Oakland County we are still Faith in Action of Oakland County (FIAOC) but our name has added another more explicit definition as we are calling our 2020 program ‘Mission Possible’ that will focus on more specific help for our poverty level elderly and disabled homeowners. This new name began with our 2019 summer work camp of seven kids who helped with many repairs in 12 homes in Pontiac. Much of this new initiative came from the suggestion of these low income/at risk kids. For them we are grateful for their inspiration.

Currently we are in the process of recruiting all construction companies in Oakland County to volunteer for safety home repairs for the elderly and disabled homeowners in our county. They will only do repairs in the area of their businesses. This assistance will allow the homeowner to age in place in a safe environment.

Mission Possible/FIAOC will assume the responsibility for the cost for material of these home repairs. For this reason we are asking for support by way of donations. Our Dancing with the Stars fundraiser will provide a great evening of entertainment and the ability for businesses to donate to a very good cause. We appreciate your donation.
