The Shepherd’s Staff is a Christian Outreach and Support Center Serving the Needy in Carroll County, Maryland. Our base of operation is a former residence located at 30 Carroll Street in Westminster, MD across from Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Philosophy- The Shepherd’s Staff ministry continually strives to effectively respond to people in their time of need. Our focus is to provide temporary assistance to resolve short-term problems and empower people to seek more permanent solutions for social and economic self-sufficiency.

Outreach by Shepherd's Staff includes collecting items for a non-food bank such as toiletries and diapers, a weekly soup kitchen, and providing free school essentials for students in need who attend Carroll County public schools.
