Mission Statement

"Samaritan House is a not-for-profit recuperative care place for people who are homeless and in need of short term care following a hospital or emergency room stay. Samaritan House emphasizes the Gospel values of love, dignity, respect and welcoming inclusion. We will welcome each person as they are, without demand for change. While Samaritan House is established out of our faith as Christians, it is intended to be a place of healing and hospitality for all persons."

Description

Samaritan House provides recuperative care to the homeless when they are discharged from the hospital. We provide an alternative "haven" when the other choices are to turn these individuals back to the streets, woods or to the highway underpass. We are an inter-faith ministry, but not affiliated with any church or religious/faith organization. We do not ask for, nor receive any local, state or federal funds/grants. We are supported in whole by the faith community, individuals and a couple of grants. We are truly a "grass roots" ministry with a mission of serving the homeless, when they have no other home to go to. We are open 24/7, 365 days a year.
