 Directions: I-95 to Exit 8 (North 202). As you leave the exit ramp, follow North Rte.261, (Foulk Road). Stay on Foulk Road, passing the Public Library and Brandywine High School.  Good Shepherd Church is on your right and you will turn into that neighborhood to enter the church parking lot.  The Center will be located at the far end of the Church complex, just off the back parking lot.  Please come and see our new location after August 12, 2013.
