In 2013 the Shepherd's Center of Webster/Kirkwood, Inc. (SCWK) celebrated 15 years of programs and services to older adults in the St. Louis Community. We are members of Shepherd's Centers of America which started over 40 years ago in Kansas City, MO by Dr. Elbert Cole. Currently there are approximately 70 centers across the nation. Dr. Cole had the foresight of the age wave of boomers to come or "seniors in the making" and started this grassroots movement of neighbors helping neighbors all aimed at continued independence. The SCWK has a relevant mission, strong board, incredible volunteer base, depth of many years of staff non-profit experience and continued stellar leadership. All of this passion has created and supported our excellent reputation as a "go to" resource for enabling senior vitality, social engagement and continued independence...because that is what we do!
