For many years, St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church in Romeo provided services to the poor through the establishment of Romeo Community Service Center. In 1994, St. Clement invited other Christian churches in the area to join them in this effort. After several area churches accepted this invitation, a new corporation was formed in January 1995 under the name of Samaritan House.
As a 2014 member of the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, Samaritan House picks up food once a month to help stock our food pantry. Additionally, we receive food donations from individuals, churches, schools and businesses. We are recipients of the Can Do Food Drive and the Mail Carrier Food Drive in our area. We receive food and baked goods from DTE Energy Garden, Gass Centennial Farm, Militello's Bakery, Target, Meijer, Jimmy John's, Westview Orchards, Verellen Orchards, Big Apple Bagels, Sheena's Market, Costco, Vince and Joe's Market, and Panera Bread.
