Many clients come to Samaritan House with only the clothes on their back. We rely on the generosity of the community to ensure our clients have the necessities to begin to heal.

Samaritan House is always in need of the following items:

  • Food for our emergency shelters
  • Food for clients who progress to permanent housing
  • Toiletries, (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, feminine hygiene products.)
  • Linens, sheets, pillows, comforters, towels, washcloths
  • Cleaning supplies, (sponges, mops, Lysol, dusting supplies, etc.)
  • New or gently used clothing for men, women and children
  • Diapers, wipes, baby supplies
  • Kitchen supplies, (dishes, drinking glasses, silverware and cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc.)
  • Furniture for clients who move to their own permanent home and do not have the means to furnish the new home.
