Breaking the cycle of poverty requires a significant shift in perspective spiritually, emotionally, socially, and academically. That’s why Shepherd builds relationships with our neighbors across the continuum of ages and stages of life as they move from poverty to stability.
Through personal visits, group meetings, and regular screenings, Shepherd supports mothers and helps babies develop foundational skills.
Our neighborhood preschool prepares kids for academic success in a supportive, nurturing environment.
Homework help, nutritious meals, fitness, and clubs help kids learn life skills and develop forward-thinking mindsets.
Shepherd connects students with full scholarships to college, and continues to mentor and support them spiritually, socially, and academically throughout their college careers.
Shepherd’s Saturday Morning Food Pantry provides groceries to neighbors in need. The Shepherd Kitchen also puts together take-home weekend food bags for kids in our programs.
Shepherd helps provide food, healthcare access, public safety support, and counseling for neighbors who lack connection and support.
Our staff provides employment counseling, financial counseling, family counseling, and mental health counseling for our neighbors.
In partnership with the city of Indianapolis, Shepherd is empowering our neighbors to feed the hungry, promote health and safety, and improve housing.
