Empowering Older

Adults to Thrive for

Independence and Health

Friends in Action’s mission is to empower older adults and people living with disabilities to thrive and to live independently, with dignity and a strong quality of life.

The heart and soul of Friends In Action (FIA) programming has always been our driving services. In the Fall of 2003, Friends In Action (FIA) launched with its first client – an older woman in Ellsworth who needed weekly visits to a medical facility for regular blood checks but had no way to get there.
