For 37+ years, Shepherd’s Table has provided basic services to men and women experiencing homelessness and/or living in poverty. Your gift ensures our daily meals, social services, medical support, clothing, and other assistance continue to impact lives in our community.

Our message regarding COVID-19: During the pandemic, Shepherd’s Table has continued providing free meals and other essential services for our community. Like many organizations, we are facing increased expenses, canceled fundraising events, and lost revenue. Therefore, we ask you – our community of supporters – to help us keep our services growing and readily available.
