What sets Shepherd’s Centers apart is the high level of community engagement and empowerment of participants. As a result, older adults have increased connections to life-enhancing services and friendships for a higher quality of life.
The model is based on IMPACT, and includes the following six core characteristics:
I = inclusion of all people and all faiths, representing the diversity of the
M = meaningful programs and services designed by older adults
P = power of volunteers to make a difference
A = aging well
C = connecting individuals to each other and to community
T = team effort with a group of people, congregations and community
A strength of the Shepherd’s Center model is our nearly 50-year history. We have a wealth of experience in our growing network. Community-based organizations that share our core characteristics are welcome to affiliate with our network to help increase awareness and promote our shared mission to support older adults.
