Changing the world, one child at a time

Home of the Good Shepherd is a Christian Ministry based in southern Brazil. Children, as young as two, are brought to the Home by the local Judicial Social Service Dept. While no distinction on entering is made as to their individual experiences of abuse, abandonment, neglect or being orphaned; once within its protective arms, the nurturing and care in the home addresses their specific needs.

The Home is equipping young lives to succeed, not just to survive. The home provides a holistic balance to young lives in danger. While their essential physical, spiritual, education and emotional needs are met, all children are introduced to the Gospel of our Lord’s love and saving grace.

Our Mission

The Mission of “Home of the Good Shepherd Ministries” is to provide the highest quality of care in a Christian environment, defend the cause of the weak and homeless, maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed, rescue the needy children – recognizing that this is a genuine expression of Christ’s mission and ministry.
