About Development

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation’s storied history of giving dates back to its very founding in 1908. A man by the name of James Fritz donated fifty cents to the Rev. John “Papa” Raker, a Lutheran pastor, in support of Papa and Estella “Mama” Raker’s shared vision to start a home for children with disabilities and orphans in Allentown, Pennsylvania. This first gift gave rise to the legend that Good Shepherd began with “faith and fifty cents.”

From the start, donors responded. Gifts varied from collections taken by Sunday school children to canned fruits and vegetables, chickens, bolts of gingham and soap. Bequests and endowments were then — and continue to be — essential to helping fund Good Shepherd’s programs and services. Other gifts of stocks and securities further support our mission.
