Our mission: Empower mid-life and older adutls to live healthy, engaged and independent lives.
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 Meals on Wheels providers in Kansas City, and the center continues to innovate with programs like the newly launched "50 Forward College", 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. Some of these include:
- Medicare Counseling
- Meals on Wheels
- Caregiver Support
- Senior Companions
- Lifelong Learning (Adventures in Learning, 50 Forward College, Brown & Gold Club)
Anyone who loves and admires older adults can find volunteer opportunities at Shepherd's Center Central.
