Welcome to Good Shepherd Gracenter
Summer 2015 Newsletter
Good Shepherd Gracenter is presenting its 3rd Annual Fundraiser, A Taste of Autumn, on September 20, 2015. We invite you to a lovely luncheon and the opportunity to join us in our mission of making an impact in the lives of the women at Gracenter.
Finding stable transitional housing with supportive services at Gracenter, women educate themselves and their peers. They obtain employment, open a bank account, pay off past debts, volunteer in the community and chose a lifestyle of health and wellness. Becoming strong and independent, the women in turn give back to their families and to their communities. One woman summed up her life at Gracenter with the words, “Happy, healthy and grateful.”
Gracenter is a recovery residence that offers a supportive and gently challenging program for women who wish to strengthen their early sobriety. Typically, participants have completed a primary recovery program and are seeking to re-establish employment, healthy relationships, and deepen their spirituality through participation in 12 Step programs. We are committed to be a healing presence in the lives of women.
|Located in San Francisco, and proudly serving the entire San Francisco Bay Area, Gracenter provides a stable and supportive living environment with a healthy balance of structure and independence where women can develop sober living skills as well as offering a network of professional, lay, and peer guidance support.
A full-time case manager links them with the educational, employment, health care, child care and other social services they need and helps them navigate these systems to maintain their sobriety. During their stay, the women of Gracenter learn to develop positive coping skills, as well as build healthy relationships and forge new ones that support their sobriety.
