Mission Statement

The Samaritan Community provides assistance to meet the needs of families and individuals who are in crisis and wish to improve their lives.  Our program is rooted in respect, hope, and healing.

Our staff and volunteers are committed to helping those we serve take control of their lives. Most prominently, this help comes through counseling, emergency food, provisions, and financial assistance.     


We provide advocacy and referral assistance to help people access government services. We receive referrals from these same services when those in need are ineligible for government aid. Our own eligibility criteria are nothing more than the vital needs of the families and individuals who come to us.

The operative word in our mission is "community."   Ultimately, we assist those in need by building connections and facilitating relationships among diverse families, individuals, and institutions.  We welcome -- and need -- volunteers, and contributions from all sources, to meet the increasing number of requests for our services.  To find out more about contributing and volunteering, click on "We Need You" at the top of this page.  You may give by credit card by using this button:
