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 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. Now serving the community for over a century, we have a long history that reflects the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, their dedication to support women and children and our mission to end the cycle of domestic violence.
Our services are very unique. Being the first domestic violence shelter to open in Los Angeles, we are the pioneers and experts in providing services for battered women and children, where the whole family is our focus and priority.
“My name is Amanda Gibson and I’m the Executive Director of Good Shepherd Shelter. We’re expanding our program for the first time in forty years. We’re planting seeds for our future to grow in our school and our residential program. We’re looking for everyone to send out the word about this exciting new growth that we are experiencing. We need your support at this time.
At Good Shepherd Shelter, we have a trauma-informed school, therapeutic programs and a residential program, as well as outreach into the community. We want to double the number of families that we serve. We serve twelve families traditionally every year and we want to double that number. Will you help us do that?”
