Jesus was homeless ...

"Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head"

Lynda Favre, Founder and Director

As a young child Lynda experienced homelessness herself.
In later years her kind-hearted father would bring hobos home for a hot meal and a shower.​​ Lynda formed Shepherd of the Gulf as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2010, and has worked tirelessly ever since to provide compassionate care to homeless campers.
