Mission Statement

The Good Shepherd Alliance is a Christian non-profit organization providing help and hope for the homeless and those in need through emergency and transitional housing and outreach services leading to self-sufficiency and self-worth.

Description

The Good Shepherd Alliance came into existence when a pastor began taking homeless people into his own home over twenty years ago. The first year he took in over 14 homeless youth, working with the local Sheriffs department. This began the process of organizing the community in establishing the first organized homeless shelter called Loudoun County Emergency Housing Alliance. This predecessor to The Good Shepherd Alliance began raising funds to house the homeless for a short time at a local area motel. Area developers then became involved by allowing use of vacant residences in the spirit of mutual responsibility in addressing this problem.
Over the years, The Good Shepherd Alliance grew, obtaining property, growing its distinguished Board of Directors, hiring professional staff and establishing solid, coordinated programs to address not only housing, but the problems that cause and surround homelessness. Today, with a tremendous capacity to serve the community like never before, The Good Shepherd Alliance owns three homes on a ten-acre property, our headquarters and thrift store in Ashburn, and leases two others homes and two additional thrift stores. What began as providing much-needed shelter has grown into a goal oriented intensive case management approach to self-sufficiency available to all our housing residents. In addition, we have numerous outreach programs to assist families in need through our food pantry, counseling and case management services, and thrift store voucher program.
By the grace of God and through the generosity, care and concern from our community members, this year we touched the lives of over 130 shelter residents, 1,600 families in need, and 1,500 volunteers.
