The Road to Innovation Podcast, Episode 17: Shepherd Inn- providing shelter and services
The Founder and Executive Director of Shepherd Inn, Victoria Shepherd, is our guest on this episode of The Road to Innovation. Shepherd Inn is a South Dallas based non-profit transforming the lives of at-risk youth through shelter, education, and stability.
Victoria shares her journey on how and why she decided to take a leap of faith to open Shepherd Inn. She also shared the reality of what many young adults are experiencing in Dallas who need their services. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic rates of domestic violence, sexual abuse, neglect and homelessness amongst our Dallas youth are increasing at an alarming rate. Their goal in addressing these problems is to purchase 10-20 acres of land just south of Dallas County to provide job and life skills training, along with shelter and stability to young men, women and their babies.
Shepherd Inn has two current fundraising campaigns:
1: The Dunbar and Meadow foster and transitional living homes
2: Purchasing and building the Shepherd Inn Ranch for a larger, more permanent, place for our youth to learn how to become thriving adults
