Change Lives, Give Hope, Reach Out

Volunteers are vital to accomplishing our mission.

Volunteers offer a commitment and passion that allows our impact to go deeper and reach farther. They also provide trusting relationships and one-to-one interactions with clients that inform our services, making us more effective in meeting the needs of those we serve. If you’ve been thinking about how you might give back to your community, consider giving of your time to the Good Samaritan Foundation and the clients we serve.
