One may drive across town, one may drive across the county, one may drive across the state, and adventurous folks may even drive across the great US of A! But, have you ever thought about driving around the entire Earth? To drive around the Earth’s equator, it would require you to travel about 24,901 miles! Can you imagine doing that in one year, or better yet, how about driving over 2 ½ times around our beautiful blue planet in that same year?
Our volunteers don’t have to imagine it, they do it!
Each year, our amazing volunteers collectively drive over 63,000 miles, the equivalent of over 2 ½ times around the earth. The miles they drive escorting clients to doctor appointments, dentist appointments, dialysis, the pharmacy, the grocery store, bank errands and more is beyond remarkable.
Even with the extraordinary efforts of our current volunteers, for Interfaith Ozaukee to meet the needs of our clients, we require your help. Currently, the number of new client applications received by Interfaith Ozaukee outnumbers the availability of our current volunteer drivers.
If you, or someone you know, has an extra hour a week, an hour a month, or even just a little time here and there, then consider joining Interfaith Ozaukee. There are no minimum volunteer hours required and you can volunteer on your schedule when it works for you.
Our local loved ones that we serve may be your friend, your family, or your neighbor, and maybe someday…you. Donate your driving time today, so we may all have a better tomorrow.

How long has Interfaith been in existence?
Interfaith began in Ozaukee County in 1993. The Interfaith movement was started in the late 1980s by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, created from a well-researched, proven methodology. Hundreds of Interfaith organizations were established across the country. Since our inception, Interfaith Caregiver volunteers have provided free services to those in need within the Ozaukee community.
How is Interfaith supported financially?
Interfaith receives financial support through congregations, community organizations, service groups, businesses and community members, as well as grants through local, state and federal sources. These supporters regard Interfaith as a trusted and reliable resource in the community. We have a communications strategy in place to continually inform and engage these resources and seek continuous partnerships for volunteer recruitment and other support.
Who does Interfaith serve?
We serve seniors and individuals with disabilities living in Ozaukee County. We help regardless of race, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity or economic status. Those in need do not have to be a member of a congregation to receive service.
What services does Interfaith provide?
Interfaith volunteers provide clients with transportation to medical/therapy/dental appointments, to the food pantry and grocery store, to the pharmacy, and other essential errands. Our volunteers visit clients, make reassurance phone calls, help with paperwork and bills, and provide non-medical respite care. Volunteers also assist with special projects that help to alleviate our clients’ social isolation, education initiatives that help the community understand issues impacting seniors, and assist in the Ozaukee h.e.l.p Corner, a health equipment lending program providing wheelchairs, walkers and canes free of charge.
Are there any volunteer requirements?
All that’s required is a genuine concern to help others. We thoroughly screen our volunteers and ask that new volunteers attend a training/orientation session.
“Thank you for your services! They enable me to remain in my apartment. I am 99 years old. Thank you! I am very grateful.”
“I really appreciate all of the volunteers. Without Interfaith I would be stuck at home.”
“What a wonderful service you guys have. I can’t thank you enough. What your volunteers do is fantastic. I would be lost without them. Your people are wonderful and what you do is more than I can thank you for.”
