Good Shepherd Services is a leading non-profit organization whose mission is to go where children, youth, and families face the greatest challenges, and to build on their strengths to help them gain skills for success. We provide quality, effective services that deepen connections between family members, within schools, and among neighbors.
We work closely with community leaders to advocate, both locally and nationally, on behalf of our participants to make New York City a better place to live and work.
Good Shepherd Services envisions a New York City where children grow up in thriving neighborhoods and all individuals and families can build on their strengths to realize their fullest potential.
