Groups may focus on elderly people, disabled adults and children, troubled teens, pregnant single women or people with AIDS. Some projects have a multiple focus. Interfaith volunteers are caring people of any age or faith (or no particular faith) who seek personal fulfillment by giving of themselves to people in need of help."
