Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Volunteer Ombudsman Program
Consider volunteering as a Long-Term Care Ombudsman! Ombudsmen advocate for the rights of residents of nursing and assisted living facilities. They also help residents resolve conflicts and improve their quality of life.
Our volunteers routinely say they get so much more than they give from this high-impact volunteer opportunity!
