Open House Ministries

Good Shepherd is proud to be steeped in Pacific Northwestern culture. Service is local and sustainable. It starts in our neighborhood and builds community. Our focus is on connection, not correction. We form partnerships, not presume answers.

We have many community partners throughout the greater Vancouver area. In everything we do, our focus is serving the under-resourced and under-served. We are ever mindful of those in poverty, and we are incorporating the poor in our dialogue, actions, and efforts. We believe in providing tools and partnerships to move individuals and communities from poverty to sustainable life — with dignity and equality.

From economic to educational, serving with Good Shepherd seeks to meet individuals holistic needs. Whatever your passion, there is a place for you to serve in our neighborhood and city.
