New Vrindaban’s Devotee Care Team Provides Assistance and Association

ISKCON New Vrindaban temple president Jaya Krsna Das checks in on Shilavati dasi, newest (just moved in) and oldest member (nearly 90) of the New Vrindaban community, while she serves breakfast prasadam

The new Devotee Care Team started in New Vrindaban, West Virginia in April 2021, is providing resources, assistance and association for residents of the large rural community.

The team is run by Lilasuka Dasi, a disciple of Srila Prabhupada who first moved to New Vrindaban in 1980 and has served there as a day school teacher, communications director and handcrafts store owner; and Beverly Nava, who came in 2016 and has served as restaurant manager and HR representative.

While working in communications, Lilasuka found that because she was a good listener, devotees would constantly come into her office to talk and ask for help. Serving in HR, Beverly had the same experience.
