The Shepherd’s Center of McLean, Arlington, and Falls Church is affiliated with the following local organizations:
Volunteer Assisted Transportation
Northern Virginia Rides
NV Rides is a network of service providers aiming to enhance and improve volunteer assisted transportation throughout Northern Virginia. This community-wide initiative aims to serve more non-driving older adults so that they can get where they need to go at no cost. Having accessible and dependable transportation readily available will help our community’s older adults remain independent, and ensure that they can age in place for as long as possible.
Chamber of Commerce
Arlington (VA) Chamber of Commerce
No matter what your industry or size of business, you need a partner to help you drive growth and achieve success. That’s the Arlington Chamber of Commerce—a membership organization of approximately 700 businesses and organizations working to strengthen business and the economic environment for those who work, live, and do business in Arlington. With a focus on opportunity and results, the Chamber is your gateway to networking, professional development, government advocacy, and community connections.
