Every purchase of Good Shepherd’s Advent Calendar makes a meaningful difference in the lives of at-risk youth. All proceeds support Good Shepherd’s Youth Services. Youth face many challenges on their journey to adulthood. When confronted with abuse, neglect and homelessness, they are at risk of becoming stuck in an inescapable cycle of poverty. The need for access to Youth Services has grown and the programs we have in place have felt the impact of that. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to help improve our reach for services like the hot meal program, laundry facilities and access to education and technology, housing workers and ID replacement.
