WHO WE ARE

House of the Good Shepherd

House of the Good Shepherd serves with love and compassion women and children affected by domestic violence by providing a safe place with opportunities for emotional and spiritual growth, giving hope and continued support for a better future. 

Our approach is holistic. We see each woman and each of her children as individuals. Our compassionate involvement with women and children presenting serious trauma as a result of domestic violence, has also heightened our awareness and strengthened our capacity in helping them to cope with and overcome adverse experiences such as poverty, homelessness and isolation. 

Financial resources reinforce our ability to promote healing and recovery for some of the most marginalized women and children throughout the greater Chicago metropolitan area. Your support accelerates opportunities for women and children to not only identify the root causes of the abuse they have endured, but to deter and end the cycle of violence through individualized programs that help put them back on their feet and on a path towards self-sufficiency and independence.
