The above reflect the last calendar-year impact figures available, 2021.
Stacy courageously knocked on the doors of Queen of Peace Center in January, seeking hope and healing. She received care and support services through a tailored treatment program for her journey to healthy living. After completing residential treatment, Stacy transitioned into a recovery home, where she continued her recovery journey through on-site support services, including employment support and group counseling.
Stacy attended counseling daily until she was to secure employment. She was overwhelmed with joy and graciousness. Finding a job further fueled her motivation to continue on her path to healing. Her treatment team is elated to see her continued passion and proactiveness for building a life of recovery. “Stacy has been a joy throughout the entire process, and we are thrilled about her continued success.”
The Good Shepherd team works to live our mission each day, but some days are especially meaningful. Katy Stern from our adoption team recently worked with a pregnant mother who chose to make an adoption plan for her baby, then needed additional support when it came time for delivery. Katy picked the mom up, gave her a ride to the hospital, stood by her side and even held her hand as the precious new baby arrived, staying beside her for more than 12 hours so she would feel loved and cared for.
In addition to Katy’s special care, through Good Shepherd’s partnership with Catholic Charities ministry Language. Access. Multicultural. People. (LAMP), this mother received language support from Spanish interpreter, Tere Sanchez, throughout her pregnancy as well as at the hospital as she delivered. No day is the same at Good Shepherd Children & Family Services but one thing is sure…we are here to strengthen, heal and preserve families no matter the cost.
The night of September 8, 2022, was an evening filled with celebration as 13 Members (clients) graduated from St. Francis Community Services’ Pathways to Progress program.
Each member bravely stepped up to the podium to disclose their story of struggle, growth, and success.
Unlike most traditional social services programs, Pathways to Progress provides individualized, wrap-around case management and support for families for several years (usually 2-4) so they receive exactly what they need to move forward.
Congratulations to the Pathways to Progress graduates, Class of 2022! We look forward to seeing all you are able to achieve in the future.
