Assisting Seniors with Lifelong Learning Opportunities

“Receiving operational funds for a nonprofit is always the most highly valued and appreciated support possible. Without the blessing of this grant, we would be forced to make even MORE difficult budgetary decisions. We are just plain grateful to Hulston Family Foundation for their ongoing support.”

Janet Baker, Executive Director

With a philosophy of for seniors by seniors, the KC Shepherd’s Center has been helping Kansas City age well for nearly 50 years. This center provides older adults with the programs, leadership and advocacy they need to continue living happy, healthy and engaged lives.

The KC Shepherd’s Center received grants from the Hulston Family Foundation that support their Medicare Assistance and Adventures in Learning programs.

Their Medical Assistance program helps individuals and families understand how to navigate the Medicare system and secure supplemental insurance to meet their changing healthcare needs. Adventures in Learning is a lifelong learning program for adults who want to continue growing, engage in the community, and make new friends. With the funds gifted by the Hulston Family Foundation, both of these programs have continued to prosper and create lifelong opportunities for seniors in need.

Over 4,000 seniors participate in programs hosted by the KC Shepherd’s Center. With the help of their senior-appointed board and hundreds of volunteers KC, the Shephard’s Center helps thousands of people in the Kansas City area. They receive the care they deserve thanks to and grants from organizations such as the Hulston Family Foundation.
