Your Donation Helps Provide Premium Senior Care in Saratoga

It was nearly 150 years ago that the Episcopal tradition of being a neighbor to those in need sparked the creation of what would become the Home of the Good Shepherd. Today, we continue to raise the standards to deliver the highest-quality, premium care that our more than 240 residents deserve.

Supporting the Home of the Good Shepherd Helps Us Continue to Provide the Best Possible Services

Home of the Good Shepherd is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization affiliated with the Bethesda Episcopal Church located in Saratoga Springs. This means that we are able to reinvest any financial donation into our facilities, and to continually raise the standards to deliver the highest-quality, premium care our residents deserve. We rely on donations from family, friends and community members to enhance the first-class programs and award winning services we provide our residents.

Memorial Gifts

You may designate your gift to the Home of the Good Shepherd in memory of someone who has made an impact on you or your community. Once you have made your gift, our staff will send a note to the family of the individual you remembered. These gifts are also listed in our newsletter.

Honorary Gifts

You may also designate your gift in honor of a resident or another special person. Our staff will see that the individual is notified of your gift. If your gift is in honor of a resident, he/she will receive a rose to remind them of this special honor. These gifts are also listed in our newsletter.
