Shepherd's Gate

A Trusted Charity Since 1984

We are proud to be reviewed and held accountable by independent third-party organizations such as ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) and a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. We are held to the highest standards of stewardship, transparency and ethical financial practices. We are also governed by a Board of Directors, and every year we are audited by an independent accounting firm.

Shepherd’s Gate is a 501(c)(3) public charity. We receive no government or state funding, which means we rely completely on the faithful partnership of individuals, corporations, foundations, churches, and civic organizations to reach out to women and children in desperate need.

In 2019-2020 financial year, 82% of every dollar we received went directly to help rescue women and children from homelessness, addiction and abuse.  Only 8% went to administrative costs, while 10% was utilized for fundraising and awareness.
