Our History

Good Samaritan was founded as Good Samaritan Center in 1969 by individuals who recognized a growing social need in the region and felt that the faith community needed to respond. Good Samaritan Center offered direct services such as a clothing closet, food pantry, adult literacy services, and tutoring services for youth.

Since then, we have grown and evolved to collaborate with countless organizations to support our community through housing initiatives and programs that support stability for individuals in need.

Continuing to Innovate

Our organization has enjoyed a storied history of learning and adapting to our communities needs. From that learning we have birthed many local organizations, including Wings of Mercy, Westcore Neighbors and Love INC.

We love sharing our story and our heart with the community. Reach out to hear the full story.
