Women may stay for up to 12 weeks and are housed in shared rooms in a safe, comfortable setting.

Basic Necessities:
They provide three meals a day, clothing, toiletries and other provisions.

Case managers conduct an initial intake with each woman to assess her immediate needs and determine a plan for longer term housing, employment and health maintenance.
Each resident must develop a personal plan for housing and finance and meets with a case manager at least once a week to discuss her progress.

An on-staff job coach assists the residents with resume writing, interview skills and finding job openings.

    Do you do pick ups for women’s clothing. My friend has 20 bags of his deceased wives clothing. The clothing and shoes are mostly casual, pants, jeans, sneakers etc. it is in good shape and would be appropriate for young women. He lives in 90211 zip code. If you don’t do pick ups, are you aware of any place that does. Thank you

    Hi, I'm starting a small family-owned business and we are interested in donating a portion of our proceeds to your organization. I am the founder of the business and a former victim of domestic abuse. I actually believe my life was saved because there was a shelter like yours for me and my young daughter to go to. I am passionate about giving back to help other women.

    hello there seems to be some confusion, to all the wonderful people in need writing asking for help on this page right here I'm pretty sure THE SHELTER ITSELF DOES NOT SEE THIS PAGE OR THESE COMMENTS and if you want to request help then go to the top left of this page. This is a page that helps people find shelters but it is not run by the shelters. On the top left of this page the shelter's address and phone number are listed, and below those is a square box that you can click that links to their website and some pages have one you click to email them.

    Wonderful shelter. I stayed here for 3months back in 2016. I was housed but not by the case manager there! Sometimes you need outside assistance to get the job done!.. I had a goal to be in my own place by Thanksgiving and it happened! In turn Good Shepherd provided me with plates pots and pans ect. Sometimes you gotta be still and let God work it out and through you which I have done. I made a promise to myself that NO MAN will ever cause me to be out in the streets HOMELESS!.. I have lived up to my promise as it has been 4 year's of me being in my OWN large 1 bedroom apartment. God bless you all and Good Shepherd for being there when I need them.

    Hello! I was wondering if this place accepts clothing donations for women. The clothes is in great conditions and I want to give them to people who are in need.

  • User   2022-06-30 23:41:32

    I stayed there from March 8th to June 14th of 2016. It was okay. I didn't really like the chores I had to do, or having to sign in for just about everything, even meals. They gave me some clothes, telling me they were for jobs, but they weren't really. I still have a couple of dresses, a green one I wear in spring and fall and one I never wore, I don't even know where it is anymore. The food was okay, not the best, but not the worst, either. I hated that we had the same exact thing for dinner on Mondays. I got tired of it pretty quickly. I had bad anxiety and couldn't sleep at night, especially with that flat pillow I had on bed. It left me very tired during the day, but I wasn't allowed to lie down anywhere but the park, and of course, I didn't really sleep. (We were kicked out of the shelter every day at 9:00 a.m. and not allowed to come back until 4:00 p.m. every weekday. Only on weekends could we stay in.) About the only things I really liked were the cream puffs, the lemon bars and the cream of mushroom soup donated by the Village Kitchen to the shelter. The Village Kitchen has been closed down for the last few years. I'd always wanted to go there. But I never did. I've looked at some of the reviews of the place recently, and they are really bad. Sounds like things have gone downhill lately. So I guess I won't return to that place.
