Shepherd's Gate is a Christ-centered organization. While we understand that many of our volunteers may not share our Christian faith, we do ask that our volunteers respect our faith. You will be asked to sign a statement acknowledging your respect of our faith prior to volunteering.

No question in this application is intended to secure information to be used in a discriminatory manner.
