When I first became involved with the Shepherd’s Center of McLean-Arlington-Falls Church, I never realized how much my life would change. Not only have I met some extraordinary people, many of whom have become good friends, but I have also learned so much about the community where I live. By being involved, I am more aware of the needs of many different groups and definitely of the needs of our senior population. I have come to appreciate the cooperation between both volunteer and professional entities. This year our Board has become more involved in the community by attending many functions that have brought rewards in both volunteer and financial support. We will be having our Volunteer Appreciation luncheon in May and we hope that if you are a volunteer, you will definitely come, and please bring a friend who may be interested in volunteering. You are why our organization is a success.
Austine Eversole, Chairman of the Board

What our clients are saying:
“Thanks so much to Robyn and her charming son for helping me over the two-day doctors care for my cataract surgery. I am inspired. I am so appreciative of what the Shepherd’s Center has done for me. It took a long time but I finally won with the hearing aid company. Thank you.”
