About Good Shepherd Ministries:
The Good Shepherd Ministries was established in 1963 to serve the destitute and homeless poor of Toronto. The Good Shepherd Centre provides food, shelter and clothing for people in need. In 2013, an estimated 16,000 individuals used the services offered by Good Shepherd Ministries. Services are provided 365 days a year by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers. All services are provided without distinction and free of charge to anyone in need.
The overnight shelter has 91 shelter beds for adult males aged 18 and older. The beds operated at 100% capacity in 2013. Volunteers distribute men's clothing from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., five days a week. Each morning, Good Shepherd Centre opens its doors to anyone seeking a snack, a cup of coffee and safe shelter from the elements. The Good Shepherd Centre serves more than 1,300 meals and snacks daily, making them the largest free meal program in Toronto. The 25-bed DARE Program is a post-detoxification and pre-treatment program that offers homeless men with addictions a safe, supportive place to live while waiting for treatment. The Barrett House was Toronto's first supportive housing residence for people living with HIV and AIDS. The St. Joseph's Residence offers a caring and supportive home to nine seniors (55+) with a history of chronic homelessness.
Good Shepherd Refuge Social Ministries has administrative costs at 3% of revenues and fundraising costs at 16% of donations. Funding reserves of $4.7m (including $150k of donor-endowed funds) are sufficient to cover 93% of annual program costs.
