Volunteer Opportunities

once a year – once a month – once a week
Shepherd’s Center volunteers come from all faiths and backgrounds and include retirees, executives, families, scouts and even young kids. Their ages may vary, but each person has the same heart-felt desire to serve older adults. Maybe it’s through fundraising, coordinating educational programs or offering transportation. Everyone’s help is appreciated. Including yours! Contact us today to volunteer. Time commitments and training vary.
