More Than a Shelter
Women come from all different backgrounds, addictions, and domestic violence situations. Some come for one specific trauma or addiction and some struggle just with homelessness. We welcome women from all different ages and help both single women and mothers. Some women need a structured program to regain custody of their children that are in child protective services. We work closely with the different court systems in the Bay Area, California and out of state. Grateful to our donors that make this whole program possible so it is 100% free for the women and children in desperate need.
Having a safe place to sleep is only the first step to breaking the cycles of abuse, addiction and homelessness. Through the “whole woman” approach, the Shepherd’s Gate residents receive help for all aspects of their lives. This long-term recovery approach helps them thrive in their new lives and build a strong future for their children!
