History

Since 1975, Good Shepherd has worked to identify and respond to the health and social needs of senior adults of all ethnicities and backgrounds in our community. We began as an ecumenical mission conceived by the bishops of Arkansas’ Catholic, Episcopal, Presbyterian, and United Methodist churches to provide an innovative way to fill the need for affordable, not-for-profit housing options for local seniors. Over time, Good Shepherd has grown from a single building of 200 apartments into a full-service retirement community with five facilities encompassing more than 500 apartments, all located on a picturesque 140-acre campus in west Little Rock. 

Good Shepherd is committed to offering our residents a balanced quality of life by providing a true community atmosphere, attractive living spaces, and a healthy and independent lifestyle – with all the comforts and conveniences of home – including good friends and neighbors. You’re never alone in this loving and caring community, yet we respect your privacy while still providing the services you want and need. With a commitment to quality and a ministry-based approach to senior services, Good Shepherd is making a difference and touching lives across Arkansas.

Our Mission

Good Shepherd exists to provide a quality, affordable living experience in a faith-based community and is committed to maintaining the independence, well-being and dignity of all our residents.

 

OUR LOGO

 


The strength of Good Shepherd Community's logo, the purple, gold, and green circles, lies in its inherent symbolism. Each circle communicates a core principle or value that is important to our organization. Good Shepherd Community's organizational principles focus on three main areas that impact the quality of life for each of our residents' spiritual, physical, and emotional health. Each of these are represented by a different color in our logo: purple = spiritual, emotional = yellow, and physical = green. The overlapping design of the circles speaks to the interdependent nature of these values for all three are connected and must be kept in balance for our residents to enjoy a healthy, happy, quality life.
