We can set up a volunteer schedule that works with yours. Whether that be once a week, once a month or as needed. Currently we have open routes on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. Routes are typically an hour to an hour and a half with the shift times beginning at 10:45 am.

Nine million seniors face the threat of hunger, and millions more live alone in isolation. With the senior population expected to double by 2060. You can make a difference!

Mission Statement

Shepherd's Center Central empowers mid-life and older adults to live healthy, engaged and independent lives.

Description

Shepherd's Center started in 1972 when over 20 congregations of different faiths joined together to meet the needs of older adults in south Kansas City. A non-ecumenical organization, Shepherd's Center was one of the first home-delivered meal providers in Kansas City. Other programs include Medicare Counseling, Adventures in Learning (adult, lifelong learning) and the Senior Companions. The center continues to innovate with events like our annual 70 Over 70 awards and inter-generation trivia night. Shepherd's Center Central has been, and remains, one of the area's most active organizations helping older adults in our community stay healthy, engaged, and independent

In 2013 Westport Cooperative Services merged with Shepherd's Center, adding new resources to enhance our mission. Older adults in Westport, Brookside, and Waldo continue to look to Shepherd's Center Central for services and programs tailored to their needs.

Anyone who loves and admires older adults and strong communities can find volunteer opportunities at Shepherd's Center Central.
