Good Samaritan House was started in 2001 by using our own house as a residential mentoring home for men coming out of prison. But when we realized we were not reaching the needs in the community, in leap of faith we started buying and remodeling more houses to offer a safe place for homeless people to get back on their feet–not with a hand out, but a hand up. Over the next seventeen years we added one house after another until now we have 17 houses in three counties where more than a thousand men and women have gotten a second chance.
We believe that faith can only be lived out through acts of kindness to the needy in our community. That is what Jesus meant when he said, “Whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” For us that means using our home, our time and our lives to show Christ.
Our goal is to help heal broken lives in the community with whatever means we can. By doing that we not only change others, but we change us as well.
