About GSH

For over 50 years, Good Shepherd Housing has been a cornerstone in Fairfax County, Virginia, turning the key to brighter futures for those at risk of being unhoused or priced out of their own communities. Celebrating 50 years of impactful work, we’ve carved a niche not merely as landlords but as architects of opportunity and stability. At the heart of our mission is a unique approach: purchasing properties and transforming them into affordable housing solutions. This strategy enables us to unlock the doors to safe, stable homes, laying the groundwork for our residents’ personal growth and community resilience.


Our commitment extends beyond the walls of housing; we provide a comprehensive suite of support and financial services designed to catalyze the journey toward self-sufficiency. By intertwining affordable living with tailored assistance, we forge stronger communities, one home and one future at a time. Good Shepherd Housing is more than an organization; it’s a beacon of hope, offering a foundation for those on the brink of change to seize their potential and reshape their destinies.
