Transitional shelter for battered women & children supports 12 families staying 14 to 16 months. Women and children live on site in an apartment building. There is a school on site to get the children up to grade level and a learning center for the women.  This Shelter is located in Venice, CA on a 3 acre parcel that once operated as a Nun’s Convent.

In Los Angeles since 1904, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd continue a tradition of more than 350 years of caring for women and children in abusive and inhumane situations. In 1977, this international congregation serving in 70 countries founded Good Shepherd Shelter of Los Angeles as one of our nation’s first shelters for victims of domestic violence.
