TSCOR During the Pandemic

covid sporeDuring the pandemic, The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond has temporarily modified its programs, services and volunteer activities so that we may observe the recommended safety guidelines. A Covid-19 Task Force is monitoring all factors associated with providing programs and services to members and clients in a safe and effective manner. Updates will be announced as plans develop. Sign up to receive News & Updates from our website and Covid-19 updates as well as current news about the Shepherd’s Center’s activities will be sent to the email you provide. You can find this Sign Up section at the bottom of our homepage.

     Administrative staff continues to work remotely. To contact a member of the staff, please call the office at 804-355-7282 and leave a message as our voicemail is routinely monitored. Please refrain from visiting the administrative office.
     Transportation service is suspended until further notice. No-contact, grocery delivery service is available for existing clients only.
To become a volunteer driver: We encourage you to begin the application process now. Transportation service for clients will resume as soon as it is safe to do so and the gracious gifts of your time and care are needed! Call 804-355-7282 and leave a voicemail message. A member of the staff will contact you as soon as possible. You may also email pgrimes@tscor.org or visit our volunteer page for more information. We regret we are unable to accept new clients at this time.  
Open University Fall Session
: there are many factors to be determined when it comes to the Open University. We are in contact with our host churches and await decisions from them and we are in the process of connecting with instructors to see how they are feeling. Whatever is decided, we plan to have some type of programming in the fall.

The safety of our community is the first priority in all of our planning. We continue to monitor the status of the pandemic regularly and will communicate additional changes as they arise.

Take good care,
Julie Adams-Buchanan, executive director
