Good Shepherd Services

Based in New York City, Good Shepherd Services is a leading youth development agency that helps more than 26,000 children, youth and families each year. Working in Brooklyn and the Bronx in particular, it provides individual, family and school-based services to prevent youth from becoming disconnected from their families, schools and society.

Good Shepherd Services' programmes are highly successful, due to the unique way the organisation works. Good Shepherd Services believes in the strengths inherent in youth and the ability of individuals and families to transform themselves.
