Other clients live in Good Shepherd apartments and receive 1-20 hours per week of support in meal planning, money management, etc. Still others live in non-Good Shepherd apartments and their own homes, and contract with the organization for 1-24 hours of services per day. The goal of all the programs is to help people with disabilities live life to the fullest, with dignity.
