Welcome to Good Shepherd Gracenter
Winter 2014 Newsletter
Gratitude and sharing are the words that come to me as I reflect on the celebrations of Thanksgiving and Christmas this season. I am grateful to God for all the positive developments happening at Good Shepherd Gracenter as well as for each of you as our valued Mission Partners.
Our Board has developed and approved a Strategic Plan encompassing Gracenter’s Vision, Board Development, Funding and Staffing needs. We held the 2nd Annual Gracenter Fundraiser, an Art & Food Soiree. We also celebrated National Recovery Month by participating in a walk across the Golden Gate Bridge.
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.
