Good Shepherd Is Here
For a Good Reason.

In Canada today, nobody truly starts out homeless. However, during one’s lifetime, various circumstances turn necessities we all take for granted, like food and shelter, into scarce resources. Whether it be mental health issues, addiction or family circumstance, some people lose their way. Most of us are too busy to see the problem. One stereotype is that homeless people are scary, dirty, and worthless or should just get a job. At Good Shepherd it’s different. We see human beings. Good Shepherd Ministries is a registered charity with the charitable business number 89250 8169 RR0001.
