SOUTHWEST INTERFAITH—November Focus

Southwest Interfaith is an ecumenical organization which furnishes several means of assistance to older adults in the southwest corner of Milwaukee. The transportation ministry helps people, who don’t drive, in making appointments and running errands.  The home assistance ministry helps with chores around the house and yard.  Both ministries help people maintain an independent lifestyle.  Visitation is a very impotent facet of the Southwest Interfaith ministry.  Loneliness can be just as incapacitation as a physical disability.  S.T.O.C. was one of the founding members of Southwest Interfaith.  Please do your best to keep this tradition alive.
