We had a wonderful visit last week from Sarah Cheney, Executive Director of Shepherd’s Center of America.
Sarah was in Northern Virginia at a ribbon cutting for the newest Shepherd’s Center, Western Fairfax County, one of the now seven Centers in Virginia. The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond was the first, 31 years ago, and we mentored both the Chesterfield and Oakton-Vienna Shepherd’s Center when they first began. It’s great to be a part of such an important national organization and a caring community of people meeting the growing needs of aging Americans 60+.
