Mission Statement

To prevent hunger and homelessness by providing basic life needs and access to life skills.

Description

Good Samaritan Center provides emergency assistance to residents of Ray and Clay counties in Missouri. We provide food, financial assistance with rent and utility costs, vouchers for gasoline to get to work, and vouchers for our thrift store (for clothing, furniture, and household items).

Our after-school Kids Club program serves local children in grades K-5 with help in homework completion and literacy enrichment activities. Summer Kids Club programs vary each year.

Our transitional housing program serves up to 3 families at a time by providing temporary housing to help displaced families get back on their feet.

Our thrift store merchandise is available at no cost to referred clients and at reasonable prices to the general public. We collaborate with numerous Metro Kansas City area agencies to access other kinds of services for clients such as mental health care, government entitlements, and job readiness skills.

Would you recommend Good Samaritan Center of Excelsior Springs?

They do a lot of good, but unfortunately they have poor customer service in their store. The woman in charge of the store yelled at my 6 yr old for not knowing the price of an item. She told my 6 yr old she needed to learn how to read and check the price of things. What a horrible person to verbally abuse a 6 yr old trying to spend her birthday money. She should be fired!And she is the store manager and volunteer coordinator!
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
