“The House” is a non-sectarian non-profit retirement community affiliated with the Episcopal Diocese of Newark. It is led by a volunteer board of trustees. The trustees focus on fulfilling the organization’s mission.
The mission of The House of The Good Shepherd is to serve the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of older persons without regard to religion, race, color, creed, age, sex, or national origin. This mission is to be carried out within its financial resources by providing:
- Residential and health care accommodations and services
- Outreach services to non-residents
- Resource information and consultation with others providing services to the aged.
Through the Foundation of the House, the trustees also focus on raising the funds necessary to support residents whose resources have depleted over time.
