SAMARITAN HOUSE COMMUNITY CENTER

Rating: 4.83 stars   6 reviews

Issues: Human Services

Location: 1211 West Hudson Rd Rogers AR 72756 USA

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

Extremely kind and loving. They care for the needy and treat everyone the same.

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

Change many lives and the poverty level in Northwest Arkansas

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.

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

seeing the joy in the faces of the clients as they are served a healthy meal restaurant style. I have seen the burden of life be a bit lighter in clients as they leave the center with a grocery cart full of food having been prayed for and loved on.

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.
