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
“I am homeless.” These are three words you hope you never have to say.
That’s how we started the draft of this letter in early September. Then came Hurricane Florence and now there are far more uttering these difficult words – neighbors who have lost everything and are looking to Good Shepherd to help them home again.
For 35 years, Good Shepherd has responded to the needs of the most fragile in our community. Today is no different. The hungry, the homeless, the Veteran, the disabled, the elderly – at Good Shepherd they all receive a hot, nutritious meal, a warm and safe bed and an opportunity to return to housing. This year, more than ever, we hope you will continue to put your faith in Good Shepherd to be the unwavering source of compassion and support for those who need it most.
We are so grateful to those who rallied around us …
