Your gift enables families to step out of poverty, break the cycle of abuse, and embrace a future full of hope and independence.
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.
We see each woman and each of her children as individuals. Our comprehensive programs are based on the belief that every woman and child is worthwhile and deserves to live a life free from violence and poverty. Because our goal is to end the cycle of violence in families, we place great emphasis on our children's services and on financial independence for women. Our approach is holistic.
The number of women and children survivors of family abuse who need our support to recover from violence and psychological trauma shows no signs of decreasing. We are receiving more requests for our housing, legal, medical and therapy services than ever before. To ensure we can continue to provide the essential support required for clients to rebuild their lives after the unbearable happens, we need your support more than ever.
