Shepherds of Good Hope


Thank you for caring.

By typing in this website, you’ve shown your commitment to keeping our city’s most vulnerable off the streets and out of the cold this winter.

By donating today, you’re giving hope to a grandmother who cannot afford to both buy groceries and pay rent, so relies on Shepherds of Good Hope’s soup kitchen for her next meal. You’re giving hope to someone’s brother who has lost his livelihood and will be homeless for the holidays. Your support means a mother living with mental illness can rely on Shepherds of Good Hope to connect her to the health care she needs. With you by our side, someone’s uncle will be able to have a place to call home for the first time in a decade.

Shepherds of Good Hope’s impact in the community goes beyond our shelter and soup kitchen. We’re there from the first time someone walks through our doors hungry, cold, and alone. And we’re there for their successes, from reconnecting to their family and to the resources they need, to moving into permanent homes with supports and leaving the shelter system behind for a brighter future.

Shepherds of Good Hope can’t operate in the community without your support. Please, donate today and make sure everyone in our community is warm and cared for this winter.
