We are the Good Shepherd Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where hospitality is expressed to our homeless and less fortunate guests according to the goal of our founder, Brother Mathias: "Charity Unlimited" through addiction recovery, medical shelter, food, housing assistance, and clothing for those in need since 1951.
