Who We Are

Shepherd’s Centers of America is a network of faith and community-based organizations—representing diverse religious and social service groups—that provide meaning and purpose for older adults. As an interfaith collaboration, Shepherd’s Centers of America embodies the universal principles of compassion, cooperation, and service to others.


Our mission is focused on creating meaningful opportunities for service, lifelong learning, individual well-being and independent living designed by, with and for older adults through an interfaith network of community-based organizations. 


Our vision is to transform the concept of aging into an empowering experience for living a life of meaning...for today's and future generations.


Our values are rooted in the philosophy of what all religions and people have a common—a responsibility to do good and help others. We seek to provide all individuals with meaningful experiences for personal growth and self-expression; for healthy, active lifestyles; for social and recreational opportunities to build friendships. By helping our neighbors, we help our communities.
