Shepherd Community Center
Shepherd Community Center cultivates healthier children, stronger families, and a safer neighborhood through supportive relationships. Shepherd is a faith-based, nonprofit organization established in 1985 with a simple but staggering goal: to break the cycle of poverty on the near east side of Indianapolis.
Many opportunities exist to serve at Shepherd. Some examples include: collecting neighborhood surveys, construction projects, serving daily meals, homework help, assisting with resume building, helping maintain their garden, serving at the food pantry, one to one mentoring. Additionally, groups can volunteer to prepare and serve breakfast to our neighbors at Shepherd's free medical clinic and food pantry.
Please visit https://www.shepherdcommunity.org/volunteer-your-time/ to sign up to volunteer or connect with ZPC's contact Dale Thomas.

Where: Jeremiah House

We rely on volunteers to help behind the scenes and could use your help! Help sorting and distributing food is needed on Thursdays from 10 am until noon and Fridays from 11 am until 2 pm.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Love to shop? Willing to give a few hours to unload donations or organize the pantry? Interested in packing groceries? Maybe you have a group or team looking for a one-time service project. If you have a willing heart and compassionate spirit, join us!
