Volunteers are essential to the success of Good Shepherd Center and¬†help us to change the lives of homeless women and children in our community. We would love to have you join our team as a volunteer.
All volunteers are required to attend a volunteer orientation which is offered on a monthly basis. During the orientation you be given a brief history of GSC, the programs and services we offer, watch a short video, tour the facility, get an update on the most recent volunteer opportunities and have an opportunity to submit a volunteer application.¬† Please wear comfortable shoes; the tour takes 30-45 minutes.

Assist Sr. Rosaline in the Outreach Van as she provides food, clothing and services to the women living on the streets of Los Angeles
On Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, between 10am and 12pm, Sr. Rosaline drives the Outreach Van just west of downtown Los Angeles through the MacArthur and Lafayette Park areas.¬† She needs help giving the women on the streets food, clothing, blankets, a word of cheer and information on how they can leave the streets. Assisting Sr. Rosaline is a very popular request; therefore is often a one time volunteer opportunity.
On a Regular Basis
