Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
With the challenges people are facing during our current pandemic, it is more important than ever for people to have a place to turn in their time of crisis. With decreased government funding, increased food and gas prices, and limited resources the need this year will be even greater than before. The Good Shepherd Center strives to meet these needs or find the proper agencies that will be able to better serve their specific needs.
