This wonderful program will allow you to change the lives of our resident families, without any added financial pressure. Also, be sure to set this page as a bookmark so that all of your future Amazon purchases can help to rescue desperate women and children. Thank you for your support and for helping us to share this great news!


Our Monthly Partners are a vital part of rebuilding lives! Because we receive no government or state funding, we rely completely on faithful partners to meet the needs of women and children who are struggling to survive homelessness, addiction or abuse.

These partners form a secure foundation for Shepherd’s Gate. Their faithful, regular giving allows us to utilize finances more wisely. They make it possible to meet the needs of women and children currently in our care, while also building a strong legacy for the future.

Please join this key group of partners in rescuing women and children who need our help! Gifts can be designated monthly, or at another regular interval, that’s convenient for you. To sign up, or for more information, Click Here.

Honor and Memorial Gift

Want to honor a loved one or celebrate a life well lived? Give a gift in honor or memory of someone you love — and change the lives of women and children in desperate need. When you give an Honor or Memorial Gift, we’ll send a card letting friends or family know of your gift to bless struggling women and children on their behalf — and we’ll thank them for inspiring you to give. To sign up, or for more information, please email Moira Udinski or call (925) 443-4283 ext. 108.

Honor Garden Brick Program – Leave a Legacy

To make a difference we must first pave the way, one brick at a time. Support the women & children of Shepherd’s Gate and be a part of the legacy to transform lives with our Commemorative Brick Program. Your gift towards a 4 x 8 brick is the perfect way to memorialize a loved one, honor relatives, business, friends, and organizations, or even celebrate a milestone birthday, anniversary or graduation.  We will have it engraved with up to 3 lines, 21 characters per line with your personalized inscription.

Your commemorative brick will be placed in the Honor Garden at the Livermore Campus and join others on a peaceful path that encircles a fountain. Surrounded by flowers and trees, the garden is a source of comfort and inspiration for our women and children here, as well as our visitors.

Bricks will be placed no later than three (3) months after your order has been received.  A letter of acknowledgment, keepsake certificate & locator map will be mailed to you after your brick is placed. As an option, you also can host a small ceremony with family & friends to celebrate your occasion or loved one.

Your gift of $500.00 for the Commemorative Brick Program will provide for the daily needs of our women and children.  If you are interested in ordering a brick or have any questions, please contact Marcie Senter at (925) 443-4283 ext. 109 or email at msenter@shepherdsgate.org.

It often allows you to make an even bigger impact than you ever though possible.
