Before Coming to the Sheepfold...

I was battling addiction and lost my kids during the battle. I got pregnant and entered a sober living program, because I knew if I had another baby while on drugs, the baby would be taken away. I got sober, I found a sponsor, I completed the program and started visitation with my other children.


I was doing great, and my social worker wanted me to start overnight visits with my children but I couldn't do that and be in the sober living. I started looking for a shelter that would take me and my baby and allow my children to visit as well. I called place after place and finally called the Sheepfold, the one place on the list I kept avoiding.


The Sheepfold has changed my life! It helped me become a better mother, I have a place for me and my children to call home while I continue to get my life in order. I go to school full time and am saving money. I have gotten closer to God and have been baptized. The Sheepfold is what I was praying for—without knowing it.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right spirit within me.

Easter at the Sheepfold
Kid's Bible Study

At the Sheepfold the daily teaching of the Bible and practical application of the love and mercies of God are the primary focus of this ministry. We want all our residents to know God as their personal Lord and Savior. We believe that you are never too young to start building your relationship with the Lord.


These little lambs brought their Bibles to the table to read the Word of God on their own. Planting seeds of faith in the lives of all our residents is the heart of what we do. Our prayer is that the seeds planted will continue to grow in the years to come. Praise be to God!
