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 say they get so much more than they give from this high-impact volunteer opportunity!

To Volunteer:

FIRST talk to our volunteer manager, Lisa Callahan. You can reach her at 703-324-5861, TTY 711 or

THEN register as a volunteer with Fairfax County. (Northern Virginia Long-Term Care Ombudsman volunteers serve the jurisdictions of Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax and Loudoun. Fairfax County provides volunteer management for all these jurisdictions.)

Online registration takes about 15-20 minutes. Go to the registration page now! 



  • Commit to four hours a week for at least one year.
  • Visit assisted living and nursing home facilities between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays.
  • Work in Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, or Loudoun.
