Building a foundation

Livable wage employment and English skills are both
crucial to obtain independence and self-reliance.


College and Career Ready

Looking towards the future

We provide crucial support to refugee youth and others by offering English language support, ACT prep, college and career ready coursework, and ongoing support beyond high school graduation.

Quality of Life

Growing together

All GSF services work in tandem to increase independence and self-reliance. Whether it's through having English skills for successful job interviews or owning their own home, our clients quality of life increases as they strive to meet their goals.


  Building Community

Creating home and belonging

Many refugees and others speak longingly
of a return to their home countries, most of which
will never do so. Building a welcoming and cohesive
community here in Utah is vital to the success of those we serve.

Good Samaritan Foundation Utah Goals

Neighborhood Centers: Success through Opportunity

"Our services are born out of need," says co-founder Jim Woodward, "We ask what the community needs to be successful, and then we get to work."

Neighborhood Centers are GSF's premiere strategy for providing services to the surrounding community.

Though many communities face similar barriers, each Center's services are catered to the needs of the surrounding community. Meaning there are unique opportunities and services at each Center depending on the need and available resources.

Services include:

English Skills Learning, Career Services, Citizenship Classes, Career Mentors, Family Mentors, Refugee Youth Programs, Refugee Youth Soccer, Medical and Eye Clinics, Walk-in Services, and more.
