SHEPHERDS CENTER OF WEBSTER KIRKWOOD INC
November 19, 2013

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!

SHEPHERDS CENTERS OF AMERICA
October 23, 2013

The combination of Interfaith, Volunteer and Senior to Senior is a winner! All those involved in our center see the Shepherd's Center as a place that is warm and welcoming! Whether they are a volunteer, someone we serve or a participant in our programs, we demonstrate that Shepherd's Center miracles happen every day. Our slogan of "nice is what we do" and "we are inclusive not exclusive" bring the spirit of our group together. Through a small budget and a big volunteer base we are able to have a large impact in the lives of so many seniors in our community! I have been involved for 13 years and had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Cole, I feel blessed, lucky and fortunate to be a part of such an incredible mission!

Continue to support SCA and help it expand because there is going to be an even larger need for Shepherd's Centers in the future!
