Services

Good Samaritan Ministries provides qualified assistance to neighbors through a network of social and program services. Our services are dependent upon current community needs and funding and resources available to the ministry.

Our strategy is to create stability in our community by preventing homelessness, improve health in our community by providing food assistance and wellness education, and focus programs to provide direct assistance to at-risk groups like children, seniors, and veterans.

Good Samaritan Ministries services target emergency homeless prevention, housing assistance, health and wellness assistance, and case management. Our special program services target families with school children, seniors, and veterans.
