A Community of Volunteers
The Shepherd’s Center of Raytown thrives due to the kindness and generosity of those that volunteer. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to assist with a variety of tasks, from office work, to Meals on Wheels drivers, to yard cleanups. So whether you’re a senior adult that wants to give back to those who have helped you, a student with flexible hours, or are a troop, youth group or other organization looking for volunteer opportunities, we are always looking for another set of helping hands to join us in our mission to serve.
We’re Here to Serve
At The Shepherd’s Center of Raytown, we offer a number of services and programs. Our services are for older adults (55 and up) in the Raytown School District community. They include Meals on Wheels, Wheels that Care, Handyman Repair, Senior Companion & Respite Care and Telephone Reassurance. We also warmly welcome volunteer assistance for each of these services.
Our programs are open to all. You can join us for Adventures in Learning, our Bouncing Back Support Group, exercise classes, book club, Breaktime and t’ai chi chih.
