Good Shepherd Mission Founded was founded in 1983 by the Huntsville Ministerial Alliance. Our primary goal is to provide hope for the hopeless, meeting basic human needs, based upon New Testament teachings of Jesus Christ. 

The Mission is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, private cooperation recognized in 1983, with board members from local churches. A host of volunteers, 12 part-time staff, an Assistant Director/Business Manager, one Case Manager and one Executive Director serve over 1,700 people in one way or another – each month.

Overall, this is a unique and amazing ministry to local indigents with basic human services as well as the homeless population.  Good Shepherd Mission is finding success in helping others help themselves, getting resources to those with authentic needs and holding integrity and love to the highest standards. We are a Walker County Information Hub for human services.

The majority of those we assist through all services are residents of or have family ties to Walker County. Over the last several years we have witnessed an increased need from individuals and families from Montgomery County and other surrounding counties. As many as 25% of lodgers and new assistance applications are recent residents of Montgomery County.
