The House has been changing children's lives since 1872.

Field Placement/Internships


Our volunteers change children's lives at The House of the Good Shepherd. Volunteers consist of individuals, families, or community service groups. They contribute hundreds of hours of valuable service to the agency by mentoring a child, serving in field placements, coordinating events, and providing administrative support. There are three areas of specialty for volunteers: field placements, volunteer mentors or tutors, and special events.

Field Placement

Interested students from undergraduate or graduate programs can pursue professional development at The House through field placements. Areas of study include social work, mental health counseling, nurse practitioners, recreation therapy, psychology, special education, and other human service concentrations.
