Mid-North Shepherd’s Center
The Mid-North Shepherd’s Center is committed to engaging the hearts, minds, and spirits of older adults. The center, an affiliate of Shepherd’s Centers of America, was started in 1982 and has been meeting at North since its beginning. Older adults from across the city and outlying suburbs attend Adventures in Learning held each Wednesday. Day trips, language classes and rehearsals for our performing choral group round out the weekly schedule. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, local businesses, foundations and sponsoring congregations, the center’s programs are primarily offered free of charge. Lunch at the center is served each Wednesday for a nominal fee. This community group is filled with engaging older adults. Contact the executive director, Jeff Linnan.
