Faith works is a group of lay volunteers who assist low income families and individuals to navigate the human services system to access educational and vocational opportunities in order to achieve self-sufficiency.
We are cooperating with Cedar Valley Catholic Parishes, Social Concerns committees and Catholic Charities to design and develop the program using systemic change education and advocacy with appropriate agencies/organizations.
A volunteer coordinator works with SSVDP professional staff acting as advisor.
