Over the ten years plus that I have been involved with GSM, I have found them to be one of the most effective ministries with which Ihave been associated. Very little of their total gifts goes to administrative cost and they are generally able to increase the fishes and loaves to meet the needs of thos whom they serve. Sarah and Vernon Wells are true servants and are to be commended.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the past ten years plus with practically all aspects of the ministry.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Pay off their mortgage.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing Sarah and Vernon Wells step out in faith time and time again with the result being something that honors God and is a benefit to the ministry.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Servants - one and all - devoted to God and the ministry.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Work with other organizations in the area to meet the needs of the least, the last and the lost.

Ways to make it better...

I had been able to participate more on a daily basis.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Paying off their mortgage and raising sufficient funds to meet the needs of their clients.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love Sarah and Vernon and Good Sam; it has been a wonderful, fulfilling experience.

Good Samaritan has always been committed to helping as many people as possible. Keeping operational cost low to allow for more funding for helping people has been a bench mark that the organization has achieved for years. I am proud of this organization and the leaders. Sarah and Vernon are truly committed individuals who focus on changing the lives for the better of individuals in need. Their love for this community is expressed by the hundreds of individuals they help every year. This organization is truly a blessing to this community. The efficiency that this organization provides saves this community tens of thousands of dollars. The little financial help to prevent individuals in need from homelessness and the educational personal finance training they receive allow for these savings. I am proud of Good Samaritan and thank God for blessing this organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide personal finance training for the thousands of individuals who are clueless when it comes to this area of their life. The schools are starting to teach this but there are too many out there who are past that point in life.

Good Samaritan Ministries has helped so many people in the past three years that I have been involved with them. I have helped with fund raisers and the back to school program that has touched the lives of school children. The people that work for GSM are caring and truely concerned with the community of Johnson City. The ministry is proof that the Lord still works miracles today.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They helped my Mother in Law with much needed medications when she was having issues with medicare.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are always there willing to help.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring, understanding, and helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help so many more family's in the area.

I have worked with GSM for about 10 years and during that time, I have seen so many people that have been assisted. Many of those who were in need were saved from homelessness and hunger. GSM is a great place and the staff is caring and considerate. They treat thier clients with dignity and try to aid when necessary.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

client assistance results

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they truly care about their clients and they show each client dignity and respect

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very nice people who truly care about people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

assist more people than any agency in the Tri-Cities area. This agency does twice as much as the JC agencies with limited funds.
