" Our mission as affirmed in Luke 4:18 and Matthew 25:35-40 is to reach out to the homeless and the working poor by sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and providing food, shelter, clothing, employment, medical care, spiritual counseling, and community supportive services to them."

DescriptionIn 1953, Good Samaritan Rescue Mission began as a little house church with only eight beds and a soup kitchen.
That was the birth of a ministry that God intended to use to help literally hundreds of thousands of homeless men and women to find the Lord and to find themselves again.
Now, as they celebrate 64 years of continual ministry and service to the homeless, they have grown to 213 beds and their little soup kitchen has served over two million meals.
For people who are homeless, the bottom has dropped out of their world, and they are left with just memories of better days.
Many suffer with depression, confusion, bitterness, and fear for their future.
Good Sam exists for so much more than food and shelter.
They want to help them get their life back ~ or begin a new one with a fresh start.
They want to help them become independent and stable ~ and REMAIN stable, which takes far more effort than running them through on a conveyor belt of various programs.
