MEDICAL APPOINTMENT DRIVERS

Our volunteer drivers pick up our clients at their homes and drive them to doctor’s appointments. Drivers may wait for their clients at the doctor’s office or agree to come back at a specific time to pick him or her up and drive back home. The Shepherd’s Center can also provide one-way rides as needed.

DRIVER COORDINATORS / SCHEDULERS

Volunteers take incoming calls from our clients, note the details about rides that are needed (time, date, destination, doctor’s name, duration of the ride) and enter the information into our online Ride Scheduler system for drivers to review.

FUNDRAISING

The Shepherd’s Center holds several fundraisers each year and relies on volunteers to help plan and implement the events.

MARKETING / PUBLICITY

The Shepherd’s Center publishes several helpful newsletters each year which are distributed to clients and their caretakers, executes a public relations program to inform local residents about the services we offer, and promotes our fundraisers throughout the year.
