Volunteers

Touch the heart of someone, and you might be surprised just how much it touches yours.Volunteering at Good Shepherd means being a friend. Many residents crave the personal one on one interaction that comes with everyday life. Several of these people may have no family or friends who come to visit, and find themselves bored, wishing they had a friend to talk to. You can help fill that void by being a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on. At GSLC, we treat every resident with the dignity and respect, which includes maintaining a sense of normalcy, through activities and personal interaction. Your help can be anything from assisting a resident in organizing their dresser drawer to sending them a card.

Employee Testimony about Good Shepherd

I love working here because I love children very much. My mother was an Early Education Center Director and it is wonderful following her footsteps. Knowing that we have the power to make such a big impact in these children’s lives gives me great satisfaction; because of that, working at Good Shepherd is wonderful! -- Olga Hansen, Director of Shepherd’s Flock Child Development Center
