Providing food, shelter and hope through Christian love.
Samaritan Ministries is an interdenominational, volunteer-based Christian ministry that serves Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. Our Soup Kitchen and Samaritan Inn Shelter are open 365 days and nights a year to serve people in need. The meals are prepared and served by volunteers. We also operate Project Cornerstone, a 10-bed residential substance abuse recovery program for homeless men. Additionally, we house t he Empowerment Project, a street outreach program that connects homeless adults and families experiencing mental health struggles or substance use disorders to resources enabling them to work on goals like permanent housing, health and income.
I have had a wonderful experience volunteering at the Soup Kitchen. The tasks are easy and very rewarding. This is an excellent place to volunteer. Although, some of the staff could be more corteous and understanding of the people that come there to eat. Also, the team leaders could take more iniative when giving out tasks to volunteers.
