Welcome to Good Shepherd Gracenter
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our fundraiser “A Taste of Autumn”. We raised about $27,000 and succeeded in infusing love into the hearts of all who attended. The amount we raised is enough to fund the living costs for all our women at Gracenter for one month!
We had over 200 people, uplifting music from the Pro Musica string quartet, stunning fall decor and a heart warming program and awards ceremony. We saw radical acts of generosity and random acts of kindness, gift giving and open arms. The room was filled with an air of warmth and gratitude, with a kind of magic in the air that happens only when there is authenticity, creativity, and goodwill. Our dream of creating a multigenerational environment to celebrate family, gratitude and grace came true! We had something for everyone, from our lively silent auction and raffle to games and a fun kids craft area.
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.
