The Shepherd's Center
The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem is an interfaith ministry whose mission is to promote and support successful aging by providing direct services, volunteer opportunities and enrichment programs for older adults. The Winston-Salem ministry was founded in 1985 and is an affiliate member of The Shepherd’s Centers of America, based in Kansas City, Missouri.
The local organization has grown from a small task force in 1985, to a vital segment of the aging services community in the greater Winston-Salem area with 3,000 members and over 500 active volunteers who provide in excess of 25,000 volunteer hours yearly. 3,500 older adults take part in our programs and services each year. Over 1,700 individuals and families received services during 2011 through the Faith In Action Care Program that allowed them to remain independent in their own homes. These services included visitation/respite care, transportation and minor home repairs.
