Turning Disabilities into Capabilities
Shepherds Ministries, a nationally recognized organization founded on Jeremiah 23:4, provides vocational, educational and residential opportunities for adults with intellectual disabilities, helping them attain Appropriate Independence with fulfilling jobs and lives, while also providing for their spiritual development.
"Shepherds Ministries has been life-changing for our family. It has given our boys hope and a place to grow and develop that is Christ-centered, loving and supportive."
For adults with intellectual disabilities and their families, Shepherds' case managers, living skills instructors, nurse, consultants, teachers, work supervisors and administrative staff provide a future and a hope.
News and Notes:
We are so grateful for the response to our need during the flood here at Shepherds. We realize that so many in Texas and Florida are experiencing far worse, however we still have a number of items to purchase and to get for repair of our buildings. We were able to start the College on time with a record enrollment of 70. We have, by God's grace, exceeded our $225,000 goal for a total of $225,200. We are so grateful for the over 400 donors and churches that responded. Thank you to all. We are so appreciative.
