CONTACT Cape-Atlantic provides a FREE "check-in" phone call to the elderly and disabled who are living alone. This call allows them to remain independent in their own home, a goal so many of us share. If a phone call is not answered at the scheduled time, there are procedures each volunteer follows. These procedures have allowed CONTACT Cape-Atlantic to help many people in need.
CONTACT Cape-Atlantic was started to keep in touch with elderly and disabled living alone and to let them know someone cares about them. Now this successful program has grown to help anyone, regardless of age, have contact with another friendly person. Our volunteers help over 200 adults each day stay in their homes independently.
Reassurance Program is funded by The Older Americans Act through Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services.
Board Treasurer and Reassurance Volunteer
Shelley Jones is our May Volunteer of the Month. She does shifts in our phone room calling our Reassurance clients. She is also the treasurer of our board of directors. Shelley has long been familiar with customer service, as a bank manager. She tells us, "There is nothing more rewarding than helping others. Anyone who has not been in volunteering would not be able to understand how much this gives back to your own life. The calls have an amazing impact." Thanks to Shelley for making a difference. Congratulations on being selected as our May Volunteer of the Month. Thanks for all that you do. You can read more about Shelley under the Special Events tab on this website.
