"She saved my life"

Stories of living your faith through service

How Mary got the help she needed from her caregiver Linda...

Mary is an active, vibrant octogenarian - but like many of the seniors we serve - she faced a scary and confusing situation when she was targeted by a salesperson trying to get her to sign up for a "home security" scam.

Not knowing what to do, Mary turned to her friend Linda, a social worker from her neighborhood Volunteers of America senior center. See how Linda seemed to know just who to call and how to handle the problem. Now, when Mary is faced with life's problems, she knows she can count on Linda.

Watch their inspiring story to see how, with a little kindness and help, Mary is remaining safe and independent.
