How You Can Help Seniors

With the ever-changing news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are working hard to take care of the older adults in our community. However, we can’t do it alone and need your help. Here is a list of ways you can help SCHC implement our emergency response plan:

  • Spread the Word

    We want all of the seniors know that we are here to help them during this time of isolation.  We will help any senior in Hamilton County the best we can during this time. Could you check out our Facebook video here and share it?  Would you post to your neighborhood pages?  Will you text the seniors you know?
    Contact Lisa for more information.

  • Sign up as a Phone Pal

    Would you be interested in calling one of our seniors to check in on them? You will have a set list of questions to discuss and be able to connect with them to help prevent isolation and ensure they have everything they need. If you are interested, please email Nancy to let us know.

  • Deliver Meals, Food, and Supplies

    If you would like to complete the health screening and volunteer to drop off essential items at the door for a senior, please contact Lisa to learn more and see if you qualify.

  • Create Well Wishes (Great for families!)

    If you and your kids would like to make well wishes, pictures, cards, and letters to bring cheer to our seniors, you can mail them directly to us at:
    SCHC
    347 S. 8th Street, Suite B
    Noblesville, IN 46060

    We will sanitize and mail them out to our seniors to brighten their day!

  • Donate

    While times are challenging and uncertain, we want to provide safety and security as much as possible for our seniors.  Making a donation ensures we can continue to do so no matter what.  We appreciate your support!

We Couldn’t Do It Without You!

We need your help! Together we can be a community that cares. The need is great and it provides an opportunity for you to give back to your community. Volunteers can serve one time, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or whatever time they can offer. Churches, groups, businesses are invited to help. Whether connecting you with one senior for regular service opportunities or one-time larger group projects, we have several different options to meet the needs of seniors in our community.

If you would like to volunteer your talents, please call the Center at 317-674-8777 or email Lauren.

“I am legally blind and have no family in the area. While I receive disability income, it is barely enough to cover my monthly rent and utilities. I met with the Shepherd’s Center to see if they could offer support. I now have a volunteer that helps me clean and visits with me on a regular basis. I am also able to get to regular doctor’s appointments because the Shepherd’s Center gets me a monthly bus pass. I would have no other way of getting around if it wasn’t for them. I can’t thank them enough for helping me.”
