Mission Statement

Connecting Children with Families and Keeping Families Connected

We value the life of a child from the time of conception to adulthood.

Each child deserves to be a member of a caring family.

Family can be defined in many ways. Our definition of family begins with a child and one caring adult.

We strive to instill hope for the future in all of our children and families. In fact, we must be the "keeper" of hope for children who are often unable to imagine an end to the trauma and pain they’ve experienced.

We embrace a positive culture in which all staff act as shepherds of the youth in our care, taking opportunities every day to guide them toward their goals, allowing them to see possibilities in the world around them and make the most of the gifts they have been given.


Good Shepherd Children and Family Services, Located at 1340 Partridge Ave. in University City, is looking for good people to use their time, talent, and prayer. The mission of Good Shepherd is to connect children with family and keep families connected. Servicescover a complete continuum of care with preventative programs to keep at-risk families intact, foster care and residential services for children who have been removed from unsafe homes and adoption and mentoring services to solidify family permanency.
