Founded on the principle that “one person is of more value than a world”, The Sisters of the Good Shepherd is dedicated to assist women and children in a variety of non profit, non-denominational social service agencies and programs that operate in different communities across the United States and Canada.
Their commitment to one another as a network is based on the unrelenting desire to better serve children, youth and families who are marginalized in society due to poverty, exploitation, addictions and family conflict.
Founded in 1927 under the direction of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, Collier Youth Services was born. These services include programs to provide the guidance and support and give young people a chance to grow and show their excellence.
Philanthropist and Humanitarian, Howard Schoor is a long time supporter of Collier Youth Services and the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. In 2009, Mr. Schoor joined the Province Business Advisory Board Committee for the Sisters of the Good Shepherd in Astoria, NY to assist the Sisters in both short and long term planning.
