Mission Statement

Our mission is to enrich the lives of people over 50 and empower them to continue to live meaningful and independent lives.

Description

Volunteer Services - Shepherd’s Center volunteers provide transportation to medical appointments and to grocery stores to those over 60 in our community who, for whatever reason, are unable to drive themselves. Other services such as light handyman help, bookkeeping, and friendly calls and visits are also available. There are no fees for services and membership is not required. Each year, the Center’s volunteers provide more than 1,000 round-trip rides!

Education -- A wide variety of classes are offered through the Center’s Open University. Classes are held at several different sites in Richmond throughout the fall, winter and spring. Most classes are taught by retired faculty from area institutions of higher learning. All teachers and staff volunteer their time.

Volunteer opportunities - The Shepherd’s Center’s programs and services are all carried out by volunteers - people like you! We need your help to get seniors in Richmond to medical appointments and to grocery stores. We need your expertise on our Board and its many committees/teams that plan and carry out the work of the Center. If you live in the Richmond area and are 50 or better, there is not a more wonderful community that you could become part of!
