The Samaritan Center is a 501(c)3 ministry that helps to meet the emergency needs of our local community. Our mission is to be a Christ-centered organization which serves the physical and spiritual needs of people in Western St. Tammany Parish through emergency intervention and Christian Partnerships.
We have served in western St. Tammany Parish for 23 years and last year assisted approximately 4395 adults and 3650 children. These families received:
1481 food baskets valued at $188,000
$16,968.00 in utility bills
$2570 in medical expenses
$2508 in homeless expenses
Some of our programs include a food bank, clothing and household assistance, prescription assistance, gasoline vouchers, a transportation fund for low-income college students, uniform and school supplies assistance, and holiday adoption. With needs ever-growing, we will exceed those figures this year, and expect they will continue to rise in 2013. Thank you for all that you are doing in our community to support charitable efforts. I hope that we will have an opportunity to work together.
