Local Non-Profit Spotlight: The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem
Being plugged into our community is important to us here at Jessica Ferris Realty, and we are especially appreciative to the organizations that are dedicated to giving back to Winston-Salem. In this local non-profit spotlight post, we want to highlight the work being done at The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem:
The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem is an interfaith ministry whose mission is to “promote and support successful aging by providing direct services, volunteer opportunities, and enrichment programs for older adults.” The Winston-Salem center is part of the nationwide Shepherd’s Centers of America (made up of about 75 affiliates), and has been part of our community since 1985.
They achieve their mission through several outreach initiatives, including spearheading services that allow older adults to remain in their own homes as long as possible, managing services that provide activities -- such as learning opportunities, fitness activities, book clubs, etc. -- for older adults, and fostering community partnerships that promote health ministries.
More than 5,500 older adults are served by The Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem every year -- a huge accomplishment.

Thank you for being such an important part of our community, Shepherd’s Center, and for all you do for our older adults!
