We passionately believe in providing a safe and secure temporary home where the unhoused in our community can live while navigating through their challenging life circumstances. We are a non-profit organization that provides relationship based programs to assist individuals and families to achieve the goal of housing stability and economic independence.
Since 1983 The Good Shepherd has stayed true to Mission and driven by faith. We are passionate about helping entire households make holistic changes towards self-sufficiency. By providing sustainable life skills to those in need, we can achieve higher rates of success in maintaining housing stability and economic independence.

We could not do the work we do without the help of our community. Financial support allows us to operate our homeless shelter and Self-Sufficiency programs, and provide transitional housing to those in need. It is through the generous support from residents, businesses, civic organizations and our local government that we are able to assist more than 3,000 individuals each year.
In addition to financial donations to operate our shelter and assistance programs, we are also in need of items to help our families fully integrate into the community, including: personal care items, vehicle donations, food and gas gift cards, non-expired food, and diapers.
Do you have a trade skill that could benefit our families and housing facilities? We are always in need of volunteers to assist with property maintenance tasks. Regardless of how little time you may be able to give, there are many ways you can help.
Want to party for a cause? We’d love your help hosting a fundraising event to support our programs and shelters! If you have other events you are involved with that might provide an opportunity to share our story and mission, we’d be so honored to be included.
