WHO WE ARE
The Shepherd's Hand Community Outreach Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to serving families and individuals in east-side Fort Wayne, and providing meaningful health and education resources to support them. It began as the community outreach arm of Shepherd of the City Lutheran Church. Through this ministry effort, the members and friends of Shepherd of the City seek to creatively meet the needs of the neighborhood through education, health and life wellness programs. We desire to support those who come to us by providing valuable life skills training, connecting people to resources in the city, and encouraging neighbors to serve one another. Through acts of mercy we desire to care for the tangible needs of our community and point all who we serve to Christ and His Church where we hear the Gospel and receive our Good Shepherd's gifts of grace. Stop by and see us!
WHAT IS OUR FOCUS?
Making a difference in our community in the name of Christ through...
The Shepherd's Hand is dedicated to offering educational opportunities to strengthen the basic life skills of adults and children of all abilities in our community. Healthy cooking classes for various ages and after-school homework assistance for children are some of the ways we address the educational needs.
Information about our current educational programs may be found under the "Programs and Services" tab above.
At The Shepherd's Hand, we recognize that one's health impacts all areas of life. For this reason, we seek to encourage healthy habits and support families as they strive to care for the bodies given to them by God. We do this by teaching healthy cooking classes, organizing diaper giveaways, connecting people to health-related resources and educational opportunities, and hosting community meals for special holidays like Thanksgiving and Easter.
The Shepherd's Hand desires to care for the tangible needs of our community while pointing those we serve to Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. We invite all those who enjoy our programs to join us for worship at Shepherd of the City Lutheran Church, where we hear God's Word, receive His gifts, and fellowship with other believers in Christ.
