About Us
Welcome to Friends of the Family Homecare!

Our company is owned by a Christian community called Reba Place Fellowship that, for over 50 years, has enabled its members to “Age in Place”. We have shared many years of life with people who are aging in their homes with dignity and grace among us.

Our caregivers are generally married, college-educated moms of young and school aged children who want meaningful work within their community. We try to match one client with one caregiver wherever possible and we try to make the geographic distance between client and caregiver as short as possible; ideally the caregiver can walk to your home.
