House of the Good Shepherd offers a comprehensive, curative program for women who are domestic violence survivors and their children. Through their 14 transitional housing apartments, they help women and their children to heal and recover from the violence. They also enable the women to develop independence and self-sufficiency and to break the cycle of abuse.

During their 8-16 month stay, women are provided with access to job training, financial counseling, child care, ESL and GED courses, and other wraparound services that allow most of them to graduate from the program with $1500-$4000 in savings, employment, and a lease for a safe place to live.
