GOOD SAMARITAN RESCUE MISSION
July 5, 2012

Just read the bad review from the jerk who calls himself John. His name is Larry, and I was there when they asked him to leave for misbehavior. Now he is vengeful and dishonest--even about his name. He's pulling junk out of thin air. Sometimes the volunteers have more problems than the homeless, but Good Sam loves them all and manages as best they can.

The Great!

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

Having conversations with the homeless who are staying there. They love Good Sam because they are unconditionally accepted and loved.

Ways to make it better...

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

Clone it all over the country.

GOOD SAMARITAN RESCUE MISSION
September 30, 2011

Good Samaritan is tops. They not only provide food and shelter, but they share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with their residents. The reason they can do this is because they don't take Government money. Good Samaritan meets all the needs of the homeless, even getting them jobs. They are very distinct and special. Everyone should support them.

The Great!

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

In seeing people forgive those in their past and let go of the bitterness that binds them to an addiction. I have seen them become clean and sober and employed. They have a new lease on life.

Ways to make it better...

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

Expand their capacity and their funding.
