Good Shepherd Residential Treatment Centre

Our Needs List

It was suggested by the community that we post "NEEDS" on this website to allow our friends and supporters to more effectively and effeciently participate in providing for our children. 
 
On this page, you will find such items/services. All items must be new and not previously used. No items may be recalled nor deemed "hazardous". (you can check for recalled/hazardous items easily at www.cpsc.gov.
 
You can drop-off items Monday-Thursday, 10am-4pm or arrange for a special drop-off time. To arrange a special drop off-time, you may contact our offices at 281-374-0777 and speak with Ms. Tracey Williams
 
We thank you in advance!
*Our campus has approximately 4 acres of aerator field that needs to be mowed ( brush-hogged ) monthly. This requires the skill to operate a tractor/bush hog and to avoid hitting aerator sprinklers in the field. We have no tractors, etc. We would welcome the donation of a tractor/bush hog service or equipment itself. This would save our facility thousands of dollars annualy in costs associated with having a service perform the task. These funds could be re-allocated to our children's programs. 
 
*Our facility is in a rural area. During a power failure, the facility has no generator system back-up. Our resident facilities, water well and sewage pumps all require power to maintain operation. Where some areas face hours before power restoration, our area can face significantly longer outage times. Our hope is to have our facility made "generator-ready" by the wiring and installation of transfer box(es).
 
*To help further the development of our technology resources offered to our children, we would like to have a working computer lab available. This would require server applications such as intranet and internet. There are a number of restrictions as to what may be accessed, so the software and equipment would have to meet those specifications.
