The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield is an interfaith-based senior support organization seniors serving seniors all of these services are provided by dedicated and caring volunteers wanting to give back to their community. Since its inception in 2001, the Center has been enriching the lives of adults 60 and over in Chesterfield County and surrounding communities by offering volunteer opportunities for community service and lifelong learning and helping them remain healthy, active, safe and independent in their own homes for as long as possible.
The Shepherd’s Center’s volunteers carry out this mission by providing free, accompanied transportation for seniors to their critical medical appointments or for prescription pickup, food pantries and grocery shopping; a minor home repair service called HandyHands and a 24-week program called Adventures in Learning, which allows seniors to engage their minds and stay active in their communities.
This past year, Shepherd’s Center volunteers provided 1,884 free, accompanied rides to 648 senior adults enrolled in the service, made 112 minor home repair visits, offered 75 educational classes resulting in 384 low-cost class registrations and provided 1,400 lunches to those attending the Center's luncheon forum.
Tickets to the Church Choir Showcase Concert Fundraiser are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, with all proceeds going to benefit the Center's critical programs and services for the elderly in the community.
