Good Shepherd

Good Shepherd Ministries began in 1983, as a handful of individuals had compassion for the hungry that they encountered on the streets of Wilmington.

Your support ensures that the doors are open at Good Shepherd to hungry and homeless men, women, and families with children, that we meet their immediate safety and survival needs, and assist them to transition to housing and independence in our community.
