People with severe mental illness deserve access to psychiatric treatment in an inpatient setting.
But decades of cuts and neglect have left our system facing a critical shortage of needed psychiatric beds. This scarcity often leaves the most severely ill with nowhere to go, abandoning hundreds of thousands to jails and prisons, the streets, or worse.
The mission of Woodbridge-based Good Shepherd Housing Foundation, a nonprofit organization that members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church founded in 1989, is to help provide housing for Prince William’s homeless, particularly those dealing with serious mental illness.
