Solidarity and Support for Ukraine

Good Shepherd stands in solidarity with our Ukrainian neighbors and is dedicated to supporting Ukrainian refugees and immigrants however possible.

Both Lutheran World Relief and LIRS (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services) are actively involved with the Ukrainian crisis. Our Mission Team will continue to closely monitor the situation for active ways to be involved in addition to our financial support.
