Friends of Good Shepherd International (FOGS) was inspired by then Bishop Charles Dufour in 1996 and is comprised of volunteer-members who are motivated by faith. FOGS’ operates a home-office in Miramar, Florida to serve local (US), international, and Jamaican communities. Through the generosity of our donors we educate youth, feed the poor, care for the infirm, and comfort the elderly.
Our Story: Friends of Good Shepherd International was inspired and founded with faith, compassion, love, and a spirit of friendship in 1996. For the past 24 years, it has been our faith-inspired privilege to serve the most vulnerable communities. What started as a grassroots effort to assist Jamaican youth with their education has grown into so much more. Today, we also serve the elderly, the infirm, and communities that have been ravaged by the forces of nature. With God’s grace and your support, we continue to expand our services to the poor and abandoned. As Friends of Good Shepherd International, we financially assist through compassion, love, and friendship. We effectively administer to the whole being; mind, body, and soul. If you would like to be the friend to the poor and needy, please find out more about specific projects by visiting our website at friendsofgoodshepherd.org.
