In 1973 the Good Shepherd Sisters adopted a policy of deinstitutionalisation. They went on to provide hostel accommodation for the girls and women. The Good Shepherd Sisters worked in such areas as youth, family and financial counselling, emergency housing, and prison, hospital and industrial chaplaincies.
The work with children and families carried out by the Good Shepherd Sisters became the responsibility of the Good Shepherd Youth and Family Service which was established in 1976.
As part of their succession planning, the Sisters established Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand in 2008 to create a formal framework for sustaining and developing the Good Shepherd mission into the future.
