Over the past 7 years I have had numerous opportunities to work with this organization. I can attest to the standard of excellence that runs throughout every branch of Shepherd's Gate. From the back stockroom of the Thrift Store, to the house in Brentwood, to the home office in Livermore and those who travel to speak on their behalf, the people who work tirelessly to sustain this ministry have integrity to spare. Also, I have watched first hand, the impact Shepherd's Gate has on individual lives. It is not just a safe house for frightened women and children but also a place of restoration. You would never know that they depend fully on the donations of generous givers. There is never any pressure to give. Prayers alone are a coveted commodity. They succeed in restoring lives one compassionate step at a time.
I fully recommend devoting time and funds to Shepherd's Gate. The life you change may be your own!
