shepcenterRaytownThe Shepherd’s Center’s mission is to promote the dignity, independence and continued productivity of older adults. It encourages personal and spiritual growth through its programs and services, and is dedicated to helping older persons live in their homes and community for as long as possible.

One of the services that the Shepherds Center provides to its communities’ seniors is Meals on Wheels in which volunteers deliver hot nutritious meals five days per week to those requiring assistance with their dietary needs without sacrificing their ability to remain independent in their own homes. Wheels that Care is another service in which volunteers transport seniors to medical appointments Monday through Friday if they are unable to drive or transport themselves. The Shepherds Center also offers programs to keep seniors active such as a monthly Book Club, Bridge and Card group, Exercise Class, Computer Classes and many more. There are six services and nine different programs available.

River of Refuge is a non-profit organization that transitions homeless families, who have jobs, from high rent motels and shelters into permanent housing. Our mission is to break the cycle of homelessness and restore dignity to individuals and families by providing transitional housing, education, food, budgeting classes and permanent housing to qualified families in a loving and caring environment.

River of Refuge is located at 5155 Raytown Road, Kansas City MO 64133, just outside the city limits of Raytown, in the Kansas City, Missouri metro area. The 150,000 square foot former Park Lane Hospital is being converted from a community eyesore to a community asset that helps needy working families move to a “place of dignity.”

Volunteer projects are planned on a weekly basis. Some of our larger projects can be coordinated specifically for churches, businesses, or other large groups of volunteers. Arrangements to volunteer can be made by calling the River of Refuge office at 816-737-5100.

Project 51 is partnership pledge with River of Refuge. The name Project 51 comes from the 51st Psalm which is a Psalm about redemption. The address where our families will be housed is 5151 Raytown Road. Project 51 pledges can be made in amounts ranging from $5.10 a month up to $510 a month. Other options for support are available on our website, www.riverofrefuge.com including monthly as well as one-time giving.

Corporate sponsorships allow River of Refuge to organize numerous fundraising events throughout the year.  Corporate sponsors are recognized at River of Refuge events.
