Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Human Services, Personal Social Services

Mission: Founded in 1990 as a food pantry for a local church, the Samaritan Community Center became an independent 501(c)3 organization in 2002. The Northwest Arkansas community is experiencing a large population and wealth growth which has greatly increased the cost of living, especially in the area of housing costs. As costs continue to rise, the disabled, elderly, and working poor face increased financial difficulty. Our desire is to help clients regain hope, through addressing all aspects of the person (physical, mental, financial, and spiritual).

Well established organization aware of the growing needs and working hard to meet them. The organization needs more funding. The hunger and needs are growing at a much greater speed than volunteers and donations. It's a pleasure and blessing to be a part and help.

The Samaritan House Community Center in Rogers Arkansas is a huge asset to the area. We provide a tasty and nutritious mid-day meal Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of every week at no charge to an average of 180 people/day. We provide food, diapers, personal care items, and lots of encouragement to families who seek our services 3 mornings per week(average 62 families/day). This ministry provides hope to the hopeless and food and clothing to those in need. I have worked as a volunteer in this organization for the past four years. Serving there is the highlight of my week.

What to say? Hmm! The Samaritan House is such a great organization. I am a volunteer at the center and have seen what amazing work the center does. They are a true blessing to the community. Everyone who comes to the center leaves with hope and knows that they matter and are trully cared for. God is working at the center. My daughters and I feed blessed to be of service to the center. Thanks Jen for what you all do.

In August of 09', Disney was launching a backpack drive for young deserving students to start thier year off right in the California region. Our on-site team in Arkansas caught wind of this program and wanted to impliment the same program, but locally. We filled and donated 10 backpacks for our local students. Thanks to Jen Boyle & Debbie Rambo for great communication and coorination to make this donation possible.
