Good Shepherd Services is a leading youth development, education and family service agency that serves over 20,000 program participants a year. We give vulnerable youth in New York City the opportunity to take ownership of their future, making a difference today and for the next generation.
Focusing on high-need communities in Brooklyn and the Bronx, we provide a broad array of individual, family and school-based services to prevent youth from becoming disconnected from family, school and society. We also help those who come to us already disengaged find hope and motivation to reconnect with their community. When young people cannot stay in their families, we continue to provide a safety net of superior quality foster care and residential programs, as we have since 1857.
Good Shepherd's programs succeed because of the unique way in which we work:
- We have a profound belief in the strengths inherent in youth and the ability of individuals and families to transform themselves.
- We surround youth and families with the services and supports they need.
- We employ a rigorous business approach that stresses partnerships and makes the very most of both public and private resources.
