The Shepherd Center of Oakton-Vienna (www.scov.org) provides services to assist older adults to continue to live independently in their own homes and offers programs which supply opportunities for enrichment, learning, and socialization.
The center works towards:
- Involving and sustaining older people who desire to live independently in their own homes
- Enhancing life satisfaction through caring relationships, lifelong learning, creative expression, community service, and the discovery of inner resources
- Providing opportunities for older persons to use their experience, training, and skills in significant roles in society
- Helping to strengthen congregational ministries with older adults, building an interfaith coalition that encourages community collaboration
- Encouraging and experimenting with new approaches and programs that will contribute to quality aging for both the active and the homebound
VLP Financial Advisors supports the efforts of the Shepherd Center through the sponsorship of fundraising events. We are committed to helping the Shepherd Center serve older persons in the Vienna and Oakton area of Northern Virginia.
