Who We Are
The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield is a non-profit, inter-faith organization of senior adults who donate their time, talents, professional expertise, automobiles, gasoline, and other resources to help other senior adults remain independent in their own homes. It was established in August 2001 with the mission to enrich the lives of adults 60 and better by offering volunteer opportunities for community service and lifelong learning and to help them remain active and independent. Participants in our programs realize they are needed and valued and that they can continue to live lives that truly matter throughout their later years.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
Our Volunteers are the leaders in providing these services for the community of seniors. We believe in individual contact with our clients and take care to provide personal and courteous client services through our volunteers. We listen to our clients and adjust our services as appropriate. We also interact with other senior health organizations both locally and nationally to ensure our services are delivered in the most effective manner.
Our services and programs are provided through partnerships with churches of different faiths, local businesses and individuals. We are in direct contact with the seniors and the faith communities through our quarterly newsletter, our website, our speaker programs and our educational programs as well as local media services. We also rely on client testimonials and referrals to their neighbors and friends to increase our client base and volunteers.
