Your support makes our commitment to our clients possible.

Your gifts to Shepherd's Counseling Services allow us to serve clients in the way that provides them the best help and therapy for their individual needs, and gives us critically needed resources to reach out to more survivors of child sexual abuse.

  • Shepherd's is unique and vital as we provide affordable, professional, long-term therapy specifically to meet the needs of adult men and women who were sexually abused in childhood.
  • Our donors have given more than 2,000 men and women long-deserved new possibilities for their lives.

"Not only was the staff wonderful to work with, but they worked hard to help me come up with a price that I could afford. Group counseling has been essential to my healing path… and I am so grateful that Shepherd's has contributed to this journey." ~ Shepherd's Client


Your gift makes our communities stronger.

Social benefits of helping adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse include:

  • Improved personal relationships and improved parenting skills, which, in turn, support healthier families.
  • Life improvements such as creating stability in jobs and housing, returning to school, strengthening relationships, and improving health.

"Because of the help I've received at Shepherd's, I got my Bachelor's degree last year and decided that I want to work with survivors of abuse once I get out of grad school." ~ Shepherd's Client
