2022 Charity Beneficiaries

Interfaith Community Partners 

Interfaith Community Partners is a non-profit organization that works together with volunteers to provide rides to older adults in the Lyons Township, south Proviso and Riverside townships. Over 115 volunteers provide accompanied transportation to medical appointments, and life-enhancing errands such as the grocery store, hairdresser, bank, and church.

In 1999, extensive community research undertaken by Community Memorial Foundation identified the plight of isolated adults in our communities. ICP was founded with grants from the Community Memorial Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Faith in Action). Seven local congregations formed Interfaith Community Partners to better meet the needs of older adults in the Greater Lyons Township. ICP began as a visitation service with teams of volunteers from the seven founding churches. It became evident that loss of mobility is one of the biggest causes of isolation. Learn more about their services.
