Six-Steps to Self-Sufficiency Housing Program and Homeless Prevention Services

The Good Shepherd Alliance has supported the northern Virginia community for over 30 years and has a variety of programs and services to meet the needs of our neighbors living in homelessness and poverty.

Our Six-Steps to Self-Sufficiency Housing Program provides support for the homeless in a safe and supportive family-style environment. Our Women and Children's emergency shelter houses 20-24 women and children.

Our transitional home for single mothers houses up to nine women and children. We also have a transitional home for single women with 4 units and 4 transitional homes for families (single moms, single dads, couples, or couples with children.)

Our guests enter GSA's Six-Step to Self Sufficiency program through which they work intensively with our case managers to help them graduate from the housing program with life skills such as budgeting, debt management, stress management, a savings, parenting skills, interview skills, sufficient income and a permanent residence. In 2017, the Good Shepherd Alliance housed over 115 individuals and assisted over 2,800 others with prevention resources.

Homeless Prevention - We take over 2,500 calls each year for resources in addition to housing. These individuals are on the brink of homelessness. We are able to provide vouchers to shop for free in our thrift stores, food from our pantry, baby supplies, counseling, job and housing search assistance, personal items, assistance obtaining legal documents, and a host of other things including referrals for other resources.

Six Stages of Self-Sufficiency - This is the foundation of our Case Management program and allows us to evaluate and develop our guests, in a positive way, back into the community. Staff work with various community partners in linking together and forming a network to support and escalate our guests to obtain self-sufficiency. Good Shepherd initiates new thinking and training processes that equip homeless people with the skills to develop self-sufficiency, resolve family life problems, work effectively with referral programs and successfully transition back into the mainstream workforce.

Voucher Program - Through our two thrift stores, we currently help many suffering from poverty obtain much needed clothes and household items. From helping a child with their first day of school clothes, to a new mother with a crib, many each month are helped by this free voucher program.
