Our holistic transitional housing and family violence recovery programs enable our clients to step out of poverty, break the cycle of abuse, and embrace a future full of hope and self-determination.

In addition to meeting urgent security needs, House of the Good Shepherd's holistic program:
1. Promotes healing and recovery for mothers and children that we serve leading to breaking the cycle of violence.
2. Empowers women to break the cycle of violence. 3. Enables women to develop economic independence and self-sufficiency leading to permanent independent housing.
Our funding is based on the merits of our programs. We are funded entirely by donations from private sources such as foundations, corporations, organizations, and individuals. We are not supported by the United Way, or any federal, state, or local government.

Our program philosophy is based on 158 years of transformational outcomes for a violence-free pathway to self-sufficiency.
