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.
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.
Review from Guidestar
The mission does an outstanding job working with the homeless. They provide so much: the Gospel, love, food, bed, clothes, jobs, etc, etc. Carole and Buddy have done a fantastic job with the Mission. They deserve much thanks!!!
Buddy Murphrey and his Wife Carole are truly Earth Angels for the many homeless and down and out. This organization without government funding demonstrates just what its name means Good Samaritans. They feed, clothe, house and care for the homeless. They also give them work and transport them back and forth. They offer also a chapel for spiritual guidance as well. But above they offer love. The love of God flows through this organization and into the lives of these people. You see they care about bringing the homeless back from the brink of despair through love and support to help them to get them back on their feet and in the process making them a better person than they came in. The Good Samaritan Rescue Mission has a Big Heart and cares for the Well being of these individuals. Providing the tools of life needed for them to get back into being a productive citizen in society. I pray God continues to bless this organization, and I know he will because He has for so many years. Can you imagine how many grateful lives have been changed because of the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission!! Wow!!! :)
Good Sam is the best! My family and I have volunteered our time,
money and energy for years. Whoever that dope is who wrote the negative comment has some personal axe to grind. This outfit has been a fixture in Corpus Christi for decades -- if what that goof said is true the organization would have folded long ago. The staff, Board of Directors, and volunteers demonstrate sacrifical love and professionalism at the highest level. The are beyond reproach. Truly, they love the least, last, and lost of our society -- there is no other honest way to describe them.
