Helping women & children
escape cycles of addiction,
      and abuse.

Refuge From Domestic Violence

Women and children are provided a safe, home-like environment, counseling referrals and recovery classes.

Rebuilding Lives After Homelessness

This requires education assistance, job and life-skills classes, parenting classes and case management.

Restoration From Addiction

The women in our program complete a 12-step course, along with health classes, counseling referrals and Bible studies.

“We are experiencing things we would have never dreamed of.

Thank you to God, all of the staff at Shepherd’s Gate, the volunteers and to all who contribute.”

— Gloria, program graduate

Your Prayers & Support Are Changing Lives

Over 150 women reach out to us each month searching for a way out of the nightmare of abuse, addiction and homelessness. These are urgent situations and Shepherd’s Gate is one of the few programs that helps both women and children with our long-term recovery program. Join us in providing lasting solutions to these life-threatening issues in the San Francisco Bay Area.
