Let’s Stop Shaming Ottawa’s Homeless

At Shepherds of Good Hope (SGH), “hope” is in almost everything we do. It’s in our name, reflected in our core values, in how we design our programs and services and is a big part of our brand.

Statement on Murray Street Signs

Recent disparaging signs on residences on Murray Street have saddened our staff, volunteers, community members and individuals who come to Shepherds of Good Hope for assistance during difficult times in their lives when they are struggling with poverty, challenges related to mental health, addictions, trauma and homelessness.
