he mission of Good Shepherd Center for Homeless Women and Children is to empower women and their children to move from homelessness to self-sufficiency, through housing, employment and support services offered with dignity and love.
- Assist women and children in need.
- Build for the future by breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness, and by giving women the skills and resources to build independent, self-sufficient lives for themselves and their children.
- Further the social and economic viability of our community, and its desirability as a place to live and work.
e serve a diverse population of homeless women and children in Los Angeles, representing a wide variety of races, religions, and backgrounds.
The women who come through our doors all have their own story. Some are domestic violence survivors, have suffered job loss or divorce, have undergone health problems, or experienced unexpected life circumstances that led them to a life of homelessness. All of the women who call Good Shepherd Center home are dedicated to getting their lives back on track.
Each night, Good Shepherd Center provides housing and supportive services for up to 93 women and 40 children. We touch the lives of 700-1,000 homeless women and children each year.
