Associate Board

The Associate Board is Village Shalom’s young leadership corps of men and women from the community. The mission of the Associate Board is to complement the efforts of Village Shalom in enhancing the quality of life for older adults. Members meet regularly to plan and sponsor social gatherings, volunteer opportunities, and the annual Father’s Day Run to support Alzheimer’s disease-focused programs and care at Village Shalom.
