The Good Shepherd Gracenter’s annual fundraiser is held to raise awareness and funds to support our mission of helping women without resources to break free from drug and alcohol addiction.

This year we are celebrating 85 years of service in San Francisco by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, who own and operate the Good Shepherd Gracenter. Our theme is “Journey of Grace – guided to new horizons” to reflect both the journey and ministry of the Sisters themselves, as well as the personal journey of healing and empowerment of each of the women who have been served at Gracenter. 

HELP US BREAK THE CYCLE of debilitating drug and alcohol addiction and give women a chance to lead healthy and productive lives!

Our goal is to raise $55,000 in revenue so that we can continue to provide opportunities for these women to be empowered to lead healthy and meaningful lives. Benefits extend to the wider community of San Francisco as the women no longer depend on welfare, homeless shelters, jail, and emergency services, but instead, give back to their families and communities—to the benefit of us all!

Our family friendly event features the Pro Musica String Quartet, a delicious three-course lunch, our annual awards ceremony, a lively silent auction, a raffle, games, and more! The Amazing Grace awards are held to honor remarkable individuals who offer strength and hope to women in recovery. An open house will follow the luncheon, with a tour of Gracenter and an experience of its peaceful atmosphere.

Gracenter is unique in that it offers licensed, transitional housing and supportive services in all areas of life – health, education, employment, financial skills, IT skills, relationships, and more. We serve low-income women who are leaving a primary drug and alcohol program and choosing a lifestyle of health, recovery, independence and employment! We continue to provide support as needed after a woman graduates from the program. In fact, 95% of our graduates remain in recovery and 98% remain in stable housing one year later!

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.
