Millions of our nation's veterans suffer and die every year because they lack services freely available to them. Help us change that.

Sheppard's Hands is a 501(c)(3) organization that aims to provide comprehensive services to women who have defended the freedom of this nation. We recognize that there is a growing population of women veterans who are homeless and have disabilities.

Sheppard's Hands


I founded Sheppard's in 2012, because of my passion for servant leadership, caring for the homeless, especially homeless women veterans and veterans with disabilities.

We have our first home for Lady Veterans located in Lexington, KY! We are working hard to complete renovations needed to allow us to open around the end of March, 2016. We already have three Lady Veterans on the list ready for our help. Please click below to view our featured story on local LEX18 News.
