Good deeds are this nun’s habit

(The following is from a newspaper clip on Sr. Paulette LoMonaco when she received the New York Post’s Leadership Liberty Medal).

“As a young Sister of the Good Shepherd in 1969, Sister Paulette LoMonaco joined the family-oriented Good Shepherd Services to set up a home for young women who’d been abused or neglected by their families.

It was a residential program, which was innovative at the time. Thirty-three years later, Sister Paulette is the Director of Good Shepherd Services, a Manhattan-based non-profit organization that runs two dozen programs that directly affect about 10,000 at-risk children and their families, ranging from foster-care prevention projects to domestic violence education classes. The residential program for young women is in its fourth decade and still thriving. Good Shepherd Services help keep poor families together and gives them options.
‘Sister Paulette is a Catholic nun but she could easily be the CEO of a large corporation,” said Chuck Dohrenwend, a volunteer at Good Shepherd Services, who nominated her for the New York Post’s Leadership Liberty Medal. “Instead, she chooses to be with the kids and they love her."
