Shepherd's Shelter Ross Rehab

Shepherd’s Shelter/Ross Rehabilitation is the vision of Director Wayne Ross, who was once a homeless person and alcohol and drug abuser. Through a spiritual experience, he found new hope and his life turned around.

After marrying, he and his wife wanted to dedicate themselves to helping the homeless in Lexington, Kentucky. However, they soon found that many of the homeless they encountered also had drug or alcohol problems. This observation led Pastor Wayne to change his emphasis to addiction recovery. 


​He transformed his homeless shelter into a drug and alcohol treatment center. But before long the two small houses that served as the male and female quarters ran out of space.
