About Shepherd’s Care Foundation

The Shepherd’s Care Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that provides quality care and accommodations for more than 1,800 seniors across six campuses in Edmonton and Barrhead. Founded in 1970, Shepherd’s Care provides innovative aging-in-place services with excellence, including independent living, supportive living, supportive living with dementia and long-term care.


Treats n’ Treasures is a new initiative put on by the Foundation with residents in mind. Shepherd’s Care wanted to do something to help those who will be downsizing their home and  looking to donate large furniture and other items they no longer need. Shepherd’s Care is happy to be able to provide this second-hand outlet to not only its residents, but to the broader Edmonton community.


All proceeds from the store will support the lives of seniors living at Shepherd’s Care Foundation.
