Everyone is welcome: keeping the doors of mercy open at Good Shepherd

This year, the Catholic Church celebrates a Jubilee Year of Mercy. All across the world, churches are opening symbolic doors of mercy.

But here at Good Shepherd, the doors of mercy open every single day of the year.

Good Shepherd’s doors open for the homeless, for the disabled, for men and women struggling with addiction. The doors open for people suffering from mental illness, from brain injury, from unspeakable trauma. The doors open for seniors, for refugees, for the working poor.

Through small gestures of love, of tenderness, of care – a cup of coffee, a warm smile, a clean bed – Good Shepherd opens the doors of mercy.

But Good Shepherd is just the tip of the iceberg. A huge community supports this work.

An estimated 8,000 volunteers help out at Good Shepherd each year. More than 6,000 organizations and people donate funds so that Good Shepherd’s services stay available. Thousands more donate food and vital supplies.

Good Shepherd’s work continues because of the love, kindness, and unbounded generosity of ordinary people – of people like you.

Thank you!
