The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." - Corretta Scott King
Interfaith has a brand-new building to better serve our community! We are incredibly excited to share this site with you and can’t wait for you to see it!
is a community organization that helps people put their Faith in Action. From
the 35 committee members, 15 board members, 6 staff, 200 volunteers, 250 care receivers,
dozens of contractors, and ALL of YOU, this building is a testament to how giving
our community is!
Recently, we were able to spend a few days with Jack Taylor of Taylor Media as he developed a video that captures this wonderful new space that will house our volunteer training, community events, Time for You Dementia Respite Program, and staff and volunteers. Interfaith coordinates 8,500+ volunteer hours that provide support to older adults and individuals with dementia to help them age in place.
Like Interfaith's founders, we wanted to carefully plan our new facility, having many conversations about sustainability and durability to serve our community for decades to come. From the materials to the floor plans, Market and Johnson and Vantage Architects did an amazing job in helping us design a beautiful and functional building. Market and Johnson coordinated all the contractors and completed all the finishing details, ensuring all the pieces came together as we envisioned.
We had many vital contractors help with this project. Bush Electric was great to work with and did all the electrical work, Sunrise Builders volunteered their time to assemble our shed, Simmons Roofing completed the shed roof at no charge, and Countryland Seamless Gutters donated their time to install the shed gutters. The shed is functional, and Sunrise Builders made sure it matched ascetically with our building. We worked with Scholze Ace Home Center on the kitchen cabinets, which we love and are sure you will love too! We consulted Capauls Floor Covering and Home Design to locally-source the window coverings. Kathy Rulien-Bareis, Jen Dahl, and Black River Falls High School art students have created a beautiful art mosaic. We were able to find many of our furnishings at Black River Furniture, and they gave us an amazing deal. Julie is a past board member, and she knows how valuable our programs are. CCU donated some of the office and conference room chairs to us, saving us even more money.
As you can see, so many hands and hearts went into this new facility that will serve our community for generations to come! We want to say thank you too each and every one of you!
