Welcome to Good Shepherd Gracenter
On Saturday, September 13, Good Shepherd Gracenter will present their 2nd Annual event, "An Art and Food Soiree" at the fun and funky SomArts Gallery in San Francisco. At the Soiree, Gracenter will be honoring Teresa Mejia, the Executive Director of the Women’s Building in San Francisco. Ms. Mejia has made a significant and long lasting impact on improving the lives of under-served populations of women across the Bay Area.
Gracenter will also be honoring Loreen Seid Jung, Vice President and Branch Manager of Bank of the West in the Portola District. Ms. Jung has been working with Gracenter for many years, teaching financial literacy classes to the residents, and helping them open what in some cases is their very first bank account!
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.
