Shepherd’s Center Begins Friendly Visitor/Caller Program

The Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church has initiated two programs for senior adults who find it difficult to leave their homes. The Friendly Visitor program matches volunteers to seniors who would like a visit periodically. The Friendly Caller program allows volunteers to call seniors to let them know they haven’t been forgotten and remind them to call the Center if they need help. Both programs allow for setting up a time convenient for both client and volunteer. Volunteers are needed for both programs. If you want to share experiences by either visiting or calling a homebound senior, call the Shepherd’s Center at 703-506-2199 or e-mail at info@scmafc.org.
