The Good Shepherd Shelter provides a safe, nurturing environment in which mothers and their children can heal, reawaken their dignity and self confidence, and learn the skills that will help them stop the cycle of domestic violence.
The results last for generations
Good Shepherd Shelter is designed for mothers who are determined to end the cycle of violence, create a loving home and a future full of possibilities for their children.
In our unique Adult Learning Center, each mother engages in an extensive program of classes, groups and work responsibilities that help her to heal and focus on her growth as a person, parent and provider for her children.
Within the security of her own family apartment, she can create a healthy family on a new foundation of safety, trust and support.
When families are ready to leave Good Shepherd Shelter, they are able to lead safe, productive lives — and pass those values to the next generation. The Shelter’s own school provides the children with a protected educational environment in which they can thrive. Most are above grade level when they complete our program and many excel in their next schools and go on to college, including prestigious universities.
To assist the mothers in their commitment to heal and grow, Good Shepherd Shelter needs a commitment from you. Will you help us build a life of hope for these families?
