Established in 1864, Good Shepherd Services is a non-profit residential treatment center for adolescents, ages 13 to 21, who are suffering from severe emotional and behavioral problems. Located on 70 wooded acres in Baltimore County, the Center provides therapeutic services and an MSDE-approved non-sectarian education in a residential and day school setting for students from throughout Maryland.

Good Shepherd Services (also known as the House of the Good Shepherd of the City of Baltimore) is dedicated to the belief that no matter how severe the symptoms, all children can be reached and succeed in having productive lives. Consistent with our heritage of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the mission is “Love in Action” and the belief that “One person is more precious than a world.” The Sisters of the Good Shepherd constantly explore innovative ways to build a stronger network of Good Shepherd programs across North America with the ultimate goal of ensuring that the special commitment and values behind the Good Shepherd mission endures as a lasting legacy.

Good Shepherd Services Celebrates 150 Years of Service in Maryland


On August 6, 2014, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, Good Shepherd Services staff and friends celebrated our 150th anniversary of providing compassionate care to youth and families in the state of Maryland. The day began with a bus tour that visited Good Shepherd’s original location at Mount and Hollins Street as well as our second house located at Calverton Road and Franklin Street. Our journey was accompanied by reminiscences from the Sisters as they talked about the history of each site and their personal experiences throughout the years.

Once the tour concluded at our current facility in Halethorpe, MD, a Mass of Thanksgiving was celebrated in the Good Shepherd Services Chapel by Msgr. Adam Parker, Vicar General/Moderator Curia of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Our festivities wrapped up with a cake and punch reception for the Sisters, staff, and visitors that included a history presentation from the Sisters and a video chat with our Board Chair, Frank Ryan, to talk about the Walk Across America that he did to raise awareness about adolescent mental health and Good Shepherd Services’ mission.

Although our anniversary date has passed, Good Shepherd Services will continue to celebrate this remarkable milestone with our 150th Anniversary Celebration on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at the Hilton Baltimore BWI Hotel. During the festivities, we will not only celebrate our history of service to the state of Maryland, we also will share stories about the transformation that takes place with our children on a daily basis. Event tickets and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please click here for more information about our event.
