Connecting San Franciscans in this critical time of need
ABOUT THE CERV PROGRAM
CERV was a program created in partnership between the City of San Francisco’s Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS) and Shanti Project. CERV volunteers provided one-time or occasional practical support to older and vulnerable adults who were strongly advised to limit outdoor exposure during the Coronavirus pandemic. Examples of support included grocery shopping; dog walking; delivery of pet food, medication, and other essentials; and mail pickup.
The program operated from March 2020-June 2021. During that time, hundreds of volunteers joined CERV to support their fellow San Franciscans.
Thank you to our volunteers and our partners for helping Shanti provide compassionate care, connection, and community during the coronavirus pandemic.
