The Day Shelter is a safe haven for the most fragile and chronically homeless, disproportionately serving those with mental illness and/or physical disabilities
From its first night of operation, Good Shepherd’s Night Shelter has set itself apart through its emphasis on working with guests to identify and overcome obstacles to securing and retaining housing
Conveniently attached to the Day Shelter, an on-site Medical Clinic provides guests with access to primary care, wound care, screening for chronic health conditions
Good Shepherd Center began as a modest Soup Kitchen in 1983, when a local church opened its parish hall to serve the homeless a lunch of soup and a sandwich
Update, Monday, September 24, 2018:
Thank you to all who have pitched in and lent a helping hand in the process of getting the shelter closed, caring for our guests, and in the challenging days following Hurricane Florence. We are very happy to report that at this time, Monday morning, September 24, we are fully operational again, including our Soup Kitchen and food giveaways Monday – Friday.
We have a long road ahead of us as a community. There are more people displaced than ever and many folks have been trapped by flood waters, unable to access food and critical supplies. We’re ready to help our incredible community and will continue to rely on our friends and supporters in this effort.
As of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018 at 5 pm, Good Shepherd Center shelter and soup kitchen will be closed. Staff will be shuttling all shelter residents, Lakeside Reserve and Ashley Center residents …
