The Good Shepherd Housing & Family Services (GSH) Annual Gala is the organization’s largest and most important fundraiser of the year. Since 1974, Good Shepherd Housing & Family Services has been reducing homelessness and enabling self-sufficiency by providing permanent affordable housing, emergency financial services, budget counseling and case management to working households in Fairfax County. GSH has successfully housed thousands of neighbors in need, with their numbers growing every year.
