Samaritan House

Helping Our Neighbors in Need

Feeding Northwestern Macomb County since 1995

"Now about brotherly love we do not need to write to you, for you have been taught by God to love each other."

1 Thessalonians 4:9

Our Vision

Samaritan House will be recognized in the community as the Heart and Hands of Christ.

Our Mission

Samaritan House is a community service organization devoted to serving individuals and families within our community by recognizing their needs and mobilizing the means for dealing with those needs so that suffering can be relieved, dignity preserved, and love shared.

Serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Galations 5:13-14

Once again Accounting Aid Society is offering free tax preparation services for qualifying individuals in our surrounding area. They will be providing drop off services again this year due to Covid concerns. Tax services will be available January 29th - April 9th. Interested individuals will need to call 586-336-9956 for an appointment to register and drop off their taxes.

Angels Corner

This month we recognize the following for a special effort flowing from a special heart. This month's Samaritan House Angel is:

- Sharing Tree coordinators, Diane & Chris Smiles
- Sharing Tree volunteers
- Volunteer of the Month, Terri B.

Volunteer of the Month

Terri B. is our volunteer of the Month for January 2022. She has been with us since October 2020! Terri works in our pantry filling grocery orders for our clients. She retired from Rochester schools in 2019, where she was a speech therapist. She had heard about Samaritan House from her church SS. John & Paul and decided to volunteer. She came on board just when we needed volunteers the most! Her favorite part of working here is knowing that we are helping others. In her spare time Terri enjoys reading, biking and traveling to see her children (who live in three different states). Thank you Terri for being a dedicated volunteer! We appreciate your giving heart!
