We have provided Christ-centered services and housing to over 11,000 battered and homeless women and children.
Shepherd's Gate has earned a reputation for rebuilding shattered lives. Since 1984, we have provided Christ-centered services and housing to over 9,000 battered and homeless women and children. We provide a safe haven for women and their children who are homeless because of abusive relationships, addictions, loss of financial support and other factors.
All services are provided to anyone regardless of race, age, religion, color, creed, national origin, disability, marital status, or veteran status. As funding resources allow we are expanding to other cities where there is a need for our services. We operate two campuses here in the United States, one in Livermore, CA. and one in Brentwood, CA. as well as operate our first international campus in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Our campuses are designed with women and children in mind â€” we know that a calm, home-like environment goes a long way to help our residents heal. From women who have been living in their cars, to children who have never had an actual bed to sleep in â€” our residents crave peace and stability. We go the extra mile to provide them a home thatâ€™s as close to the real thing as possible.
The Livermore Campus includes our corporate office, 2 residence halls and 5 two-bedroom cottages. Our residence halls are built to accommodate mothers and their children, so families can stay together as they recover.
The cottages are transitional housing for women who have graduated from our program and are building independence, but still need some assistance and mentoring before fully stepping out on their own with their children.
This campus cares for up to 70 women and children at a time.
Office hours and donation times: Monday - Thursday 9:30am- 4:30pm
