Good Shepherd Services goes where children, youth, and families face the greatest challenges and provides resources that build on their inherent strengths to help them thrive. We operate 100 programs, which help over 30,000 youth and family members in struggling neighborhoods throughout New York City. All of our programs are united by a common goal—to create opportunities that help our participants succeed at school, at home, and in their community.
We go where the need is greatest—where problems are deeply entrenched, obstacles are high, and neighborhoods are often untouched by other support systems.
Good Shepherd is different—our confidence in NYC’s youth and families, combined with our track record of success, shows us that with the right approach, real change is possible even in the most challenging of environments.
