Good Shepherd Center operates within the framework and heritage of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd.
The Sisters opened the first House of the Good Shepherd in Maryland in 1864.
The Sisters of the Good Shepherd were founded by St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier (1796-1868) who founded 110 houses in her lifetime to help girls and women in crisis.
The Good Shepherd Center provides a continuum of services that combines treatment, residential and educational services for adolescent girls and their families who are experiencing personal, family and societal conflicts.
With over 140 years of experience, the Good Shepherd Center has served over 30,000 girls and their families in Maryland.
All of the Good Shepherd programs are built upon a philosophy which is focused on the uniqueness and value of the person.
It is concerned with human potential, its individuality and self-confidence in coping effectively with daily living.
Good Shepherd’s professional, competent and caring staff provide an atmosphere of understanding acceptance and an invitation to growth.
Each member attempts to open new vistas of hope for each girl and her family.
