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.
Geri Sampson is our August Reassurance Volunteer of the Month. She helps with calls three times a week, including doing the full-shift every Friday afternoon. Geri is blind. We send her our list of calls and her son Art puts them into Braille for her. Geri likes to make our clients feel special and says, "I try to lift them up." She is truly an inspiration for all. Congratulations Geri and thanks for all you do!
