The sold-out audience was rolling in the aisles when nationally recognized comedy troupe, Capitol Steps, appeared at the 2014 benefit performance for the Shepherd's Center of Oakton-Vienna (SCOV). SCOV serves older adults in Oakton, Vienna, Merrifield, Dunn Loring and portions of Fairfax and Reston.
Founded in 1997, the Shepherd’s Center of Oakton-Vienna is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for adults (50+) to seek rewarding lives and to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. Last year SCOV’s services, personal enrichment and volunteer opportunities reached more than 3,000 older adults (50+) in the region.
In 2014 the agency was recognized by the National Volunteer Caregiving Network with their Program of the Year award. In 2012 SCOV was voted the Best Nonprofit of the Year by the Vienna Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Each year more than 200 volunteers at SCOV serve as medical drivers, companion drivers, friendly callers and visitors, health and wellness counselors, fundraisers, and grant writers. These volunteers run programs such as Lunch n’ Life, Adventures in Learning, trips and outings, special events, and caregivers’ support groups.
