Everyone is part of the Caring Network at First Unitarian. We are a community; we are a family; and we look after each other, guided by our Seven Principles. Taking care of one another is a spiritual practice. The Caring Network is one way of practicing.
The Caring Network includes the Care Crew, Phone Buddies, Deacons, Membership, Women’s Alliance, Mindful Grieving Group, Chalice Circles, the Men’s Group, and really all of us.
To make a request of the Caring Network or to volunteer, call the church office.
Care Crew is ready to assist members of the community facing illness, recuperation from surgery, and other needs. The Care Crew also assists with errands, rides, home visits, cards, and calls. Members warehouse medical supplies for people who have orthopedic needs for safety at home and on our church campus.
Meal Train provides meals on a short-term basis to those who are ill, recovering from surgery, or have special family circumstances. The Meal Train is composed of members of our church community.
Phone Buddies has been initiated for those who live alone and would like a daily contact to make sure of safety and well-being. Anyone who would like to receive or give a call can join Phone Buddies at any time.
Through a generous donation by a member, two Automatic External Defibrillators (AED’s) have been purchased and installed on the church campus. A group of church members has taken Red Cross training to use them.
