New Executive Director Appointed

Julie Adams-Buchanan

The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond is pleased to announce the appointment of Julie Adams-Buchanan as its Executive Director. Julie has had the position of coordinator of volunteer services at the Center for the past six years, interviewing prospective clients and overseeing the hundreds of volunteers who provide transportation and other help for seniors.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors I am delighted to welcome Julie as our new Executive Director,” said Board President Art Gunlicks. “She brings a great deal of experience in the area of volunteer services and is enthusiastic about the Shepherd’s Center and the people we serve. We look forward to her leadership in the years ahead.”

Bill Blake article in the RTD!

One of our wonderful volunteer teachers (and past president and board member) was featured in the Richmond Times-Dispatch this last Saturday. We love Bill Blake, who has written The Shepherd’s Center a couple of his great songs (one of which we have on video – to be posted at a later date – grin!).  Take a look at the article:
