Our Programmes: Shelter Homes

Good Shepherd Centre

The Good Shepherd Centre is a crisis shelter for women and children in partnership with Marymount Centre and the Good Shepherd Sisters. The Centre began at Jalan Shaer in 1986 as a halfway house for women ex-drug addicts and ex-prisoners who had served their terms and had no place to go to. It soon grew to also provide assistance to female victims of family violence and their children. In 2003, after much deliberation, Good Shepherd Centre took over the residential programme of Rose Villa to provide accommodation and care for unmarried mothers during their pregnancy and confinement.

Good Shepherd Centre believes in the worth and dignity of each person. It offers healing and hope, and shares with them the love and compassion of Jesus, our Good Shepherd.

Good Shepherd Centre is a place where teenagers, women, mothers and their children can rebuild their lives after violence, abuse and victimization and other setbacks in life. It provides a continuum of services that combines treatment, residential and educational services, and spiritual support to help them regain self-esteem and self-confidence.
