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.
Gatekeeper Program funded in part by Ocean City Home bank Charitable Fund.
Regina Williams-Fields is our September Reassurance Volunteer of the Month. She helps with calls twice a week. Every Monday and Wednesday morning Regina reaches out to our clients. She also receives a daily reassurance call from her fellow volunteers. She understands CONTACT Cape-Atlantic from both ends of the phone. She tells us that, "This has added a lot of purpose to my life." When she reports in after making her calls she always leaves a message thanking us for allowing her to be a part of our program. We appreciate her help, and are happy she is a part of CONTACT Cape-Atlantic. Congratulations Regina and thanks for all you do!
