Leaving a gift in your Will to Shepherds of Good Hope Foundation will help ensure Ottawa’s most vulnerable men and women get the care they deserve. Your gift will ensure Ottawa’s homeless continue to receive the necessities — food, clothing and shelter as well as access to health care, counselling and skills training.

We believe everyone is entitled to a life with dignity. Leaving a gift will ensure no one slips through the cracks in the future.

“I believe we are here on this earth not just to help ourselves and those closest to us, but also and more importantly to help others. For me, it is the homeless, the most vulnerable, that need our help.
I want to help care for those people and make a difference in their lives.”
Shirley Soehn

When you leave a gift in your will, you are connecting with the men and women of tomorrow.
