Friends of Good Shepherd Mobay, Inc. raises much needed funds to financially support the various efforts of The Good Shepherd Foundation. All donations are tax deductible under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).

The Good Shepherd Foundation of Montego Bay is the brain child of Most Rev. Charles H. Dufour D.D., C.D., former Roman Catholic Bishop of Montego Bay and current Archbishop of Kingston Jamaica. It was founded in September 1996.

It was officially launched on February 20, 1997 by Governor General, Most Hon. Sir Howard Cooke, and was established in an effort to address the plight of Montego Bay’s neediest citizens, assisting them to become productive members of their communities.

Friends of Good Shepherd Mobay, Inc., headed by Marie Dufour-Buteau and Food For The Poor are the largest benefactors of the Foundation and have miraculously been able to sustain the spiraling operating expenses of the various facilities. Prominent attorney Jeanne P. Robinson-Foster is  the chairperson of the Good Shepherd Foundation in Montego Bay.

 FOGS is devoted to serving the poor and disadvantaged of Jamaica and beyond. We have contributed to Haiti’s Hurricane and Earthquake Relief Funds with financial aid, medical supplies and container loads of food. Assistance was also given to the disaster relief in Louisiana.

Each year, a raffle is drawn at the Annual Dinner/Dance held in the Spring. The proceeds of this raffle help fund the various projects under the Good Shepherd Foundation.

Our next Annual Fundraiser Dinner & Dance will be held April 26, 2014 and it marks our 18th anniversary. If you would like to be a sponsor or place an advertisement in our annual magazine, please call us at (954)441-9886. Thank you for all your support.
