Thank You!

We are grateful for all of the incredible partners and volunteers that God included in our first 35 years!


From Humble beginnings in April of 1984 that provided 30 days of emergency shelter


Two state-of-the art campuses that provide comprehensive, Christ centered and life changing programs for women and children

Please join us as we celebrate 35 years of ministering together to help women and children suffering from domestic violence, addiction and homelessness by making a gift of $35 today.

AliceAnn’s Vision

Called by God to serve women and children in the name of Christ, AliceAnn believed if she was faithful to her calling, that God would bless and expand her ministry.

When she first opened her two bedroom home to families in need, she never imagined how many people God would heal over the next 35 years.

God gave her a building when her house proved too small. He provided land and the construction of the Livermoore campus with the help of Steve McRee. Most recently, the expansion into Brentwood increased our capacity and our outreach.

We are humbled by her commitment to God’s call —and anticipate what He will do in the next 35 years!

Give a gift to continue her legacy

$35 to Honor 35 Years

Every $35 provides one day of food, shelter, case management and other care for women and children fleeing domestic violence, addiction and homelessness.


Over the last 27 years, I have been a wholehearted donor and volunteer for Shepherd’s Gate.

I’ve had an opportunity to experience the life-changing programs and resources provided there for the women and their kids.

I want to thank you for the wonderful support of Shepherd’s Gate over the past 35 years. I’m proud to be a part of a ministry that has already served over 12,000 women and children. Of course, it’s not about us, it’s about these women and children whose lives have been restored. It’s about your opportunity to reach the next 12,000 with us.

And most of all, it’s about the love of Jesus that heals the hurt and provides hope in the future for all of us. That’s why I’m so excited to lead this ministry into the next 35 years and carry on the legacy that AliceAnn started. I’m hoping and praying that you will join us in this journey!
