Dennis Abbott of Hackensack joined the board of directors of Faith in Action for Cass County on Sept. 10. 

Abbott begins a two-year term, replacing Jamie Richter, who resigned from the board earlier this year. 

Abbott is retired to the Ten Mile Lake area with his wife, Paula. He brings experience in project management from a career in engineering to the leadership of Faith in Action.

The board of directors of Faith in Action for Cass County guides and oversees the volunteer services and activities of the organization. The board ensures that the mission and vision of Faith in Action is carried out and helps promote Faith in Action in the communities throughout Cass County. 

Applications are currently being accepted for two to three additional board members to begin in December.

Neighborly volunteers are the heart and hands of Faith in Action. Faith in Action volunteers provide transportation, friendly visiting and respite care, light homemaking, chore and home maintenance services, delivers Meals on Wheels and builds accessibility ramps.

The goal is to help people remain in their home and communities with neighborly assistance. For more information on Faith in Action services, volunteer opportunities or an application to serve on the board, contact Faith in Action at 866-675-5435 or cassfia@uslink.net.
