I am an older Pastor-graduated Seminary in 1964-and for decades have personally sent donations to Good Samaritan. Their track record speaks volumes to those who ask whether to support or not. On several occasions I have visited there and seen first hand the wonderful ministry to homeless men women and children, allowing them to turn their lives around and get a new start.

I've been supporting Good Samaritan for 15 years with donations and volunteer help. I know the directors, Buddy and Carole Murphrey and they are two of the finest people I ever met. They are doing a great job at Good Samaritan providing food, shelter, clothes, and even jobs for hundreds of people every week. Good Samaritan is the largest shelter for homeless in South Texas and they don't accept Government Funding. Nither do they button hole people for donations. It is trully a faith based ministry. More power to them!

We will never donate again. Abusive behavior to the people at the shelter. Use religion to demean people at the shelter. Carole Murphrey tells them that she is a prophet from God and gives them direct words from God. Uses this to abuse clients. Uses gifts for personal use.

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

The board is made up of people from their church or out of town with only P.O. Boxes We read e-mails and letters that Carole Murphrey Had sent to people. Our church will never give to them again

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

Get perfessional psychiatric help for Carole Murphrey. A former Church member at the Murphrey's church told our pastor that Carole was the piano player at Buddy Murphrey's church, had an affair with buddy. He then left his wife and family and married Carole. I guess Carole had another direct word from God. They are dishonest people.

we wanted to help

What would you tell others about this organization?

Do not give them anything. There are so many other groups that do an honest work and are people who care. Not people who want to control people.
