On April 29, 2017 at the Westin Alexandria, over 300 guests will gather to enjoy cocktails, dinner and our signature silent auction. The evening will conclude with a fabulous after-party of dancing and desserts. Join us for a truly inspirational evening to help transform the lives of families on the brink of homelessness by providing affordable housing.

Good Shepherd Housing & Family Services (GSH) proudly presents its 2017 Transforming Lives Gala, the organization’s largest and most important fundraiser of the year. Since 1974, Good Shepherd Housing & Family Services has been reducing homelessness and enabling self-sufficiency by providing permanent affordable housing, emergency financial services, budget counseling and case management to working households in Fairfax County. GSH has successfully housed thousands of neighbors in need, with their numbers growing every year.
