This is a great medical and dental clinic that offers preventive care to to those in need of care with modest extra funds for this care. It charges for its services on a sliding scale of ability to pay. Everyone has to pay something even if only $5. Good Samaritan moved back two years ago to its roots of being in a local neighborhood in inner city. it recently completed a teaching kitchen. This kitchen is run by a dietician who will show folks how to plan and cook a healthy and tasty meal with a small budget. The clinic offers services for men, women and children. It also has various clinics on Ssaturdays throughout year by getting say dental practices to volunteer to do anything needed such as root canasl to filings and crowns. On some Saturdays eye clinics are offered. Everyone in need of glasses or contacts can come. Those needing to get checked for glacoma as well or any other eye related issues. Anything that can't be done at clinic can be referred elsewhere. It is a very good steward of its monies received from donors. Last of all i learned this year that it provides helps folks with missing limbs to secure prostitus at a reasnable cost. It is one of few clinics to offer this service. You can go to the website to read about story of a teacher from Africa who lost her leg in a bus accident 25-30 years ago. She had one but it was time to replace it. We were ble to design one for her needs. It was heart wrenching to hear what it meant to her to be able to get around and have a normal life and be independent. By William Hoyt.

Of all of the non-profit organizations that I have worked with, Good Sam does by far more with its resources in meeting the needs of individuals in need in the Atlanta community. The health care provided is as good as the best health care in Atlanta, and it is serving the underserved. The people in the organization are dedicated to its mission, and continues to provide excellent services to the working poor, uninsured, homeless, and down on their luck population. Over 25,000 visits are made to the center each year. It is a terrific ministry!
