As a nonprofit interfaith organization run by senior adults for senior adults, The Shepherd’s Center worked for 10 years to improve the quality of life of those ages 55 and over in the West End area of Nashville. When it closed in 1999, its absence left a void for the many senior adults in the area. With limited funds remaining, the leadership opted to create The Shepherd’s Center Field-of-Interest Fund, which gives grants to nonprofits serving senior adults in Middle Tennessee. As a result, the mission of The Shepherd’s Center and its proud history will continue in perpetuity.
