Programs & Services
KC Shepherd's Center adopts and maintains a model of lifecycle needs-driven programs and services that meet the changing multi-faceted needs of older adults as they age, keeping them independent and supported throughout their lives. Engagement of our community's older adults is core to the work of KC Shepherd's Center; we intentionally embed the voice of the older adult in every decision we make. Our programs and services are informed directly by our senior-driven advisory and governance structures, and we work to create ongoing opportunities for older adults who have a desire to serve ways to make a meaningful difference in the lives of older adults.
Our current programs and services are highlighted here. We take the stewardship of the resources we are given very seriously and operate with the philosophy of not duplicating or competing to serve older adults. We can not, and should not, try to be all things to all people. The only way to achieve our mission of empowering older adults to live healthy, engaged and independently throughout their lives, is to collaborate with strategic partners and take a leadership role in facilitating the development of a continuum of care in the many facets of aging well in place. We are acutely aware of the inequities in the systems that affect aging, and will continue to raise our voice for greater impact through advocacy for the needs of older adults in partnership with others with similar missions.
