Thank You Volunteers!

We salute the true hearts and hands of Samaritan House - our volunteers. With only four part-time employees, the incredible work accomplished here for our brothers and sisters is done because of the kindness and love from 90 plus volunteers that give of their time every month.

From putting out loaves of bread and meeting with clients to stocking the shelves, sweeping the floors and fixing the doors, our volunteers are the BEST! Bless you.

To join our wonderful team
of volunteers or for more information, please call
Judy at 586-336-9956.
