CIVS Mission Statement: “Caregivers, Interfaith Volunteers of Springfield (CIVS) is a network of religious congregations and community agencies who through groups of trained volunteers assist the frail elderly and their families maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life and prevent unnecessary institutionalization.” This program, coordinated through St. John’s Hospital Third Age Living, works through partner churches to provide volunteer help for older adults and their families. New volunteers are always needed. Individuals needing assistance or wishing to volunteer should contact the parish office.
