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.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

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

Angels Corner

Our June Volunteer of the Month!

Carl has been volunteering here at Samaritan House for a little over four years! He works in our pantry on Tuesday mornings filling the food orders for our clients.

Carl retired about five years ago after owning the 7-Eleven store at 24 and Shelby for 25 years! He really enjoyed working at the store but decided it was time to retire when he turned 77!

We appreciate your time and giving spirit Carl. Thank you for all that you do here at Samaritan House! And thank you to all of our volunteers, we couldn't do what we do without all of you!

Volunteers are not paid...not because they are worthless,
but because they are priceless." ~Unknown

Kids Summer Food Program

The end of the school year is here and with that we are bringing back our Kids Summer Food Program. This program ensures children have enough to eat while they are home for the summer. It is open to our clients with school age children. For the months of June, July and August these families will receive a special box each month containing extra breakfast and lunch foods, along with fresh fruit. Each family will also receive a $20 food only gift card. With the rising costs of nearly everything, we are blessed to be able to help meet the needs of our clients.

In May, Samaritan House...

  • provided food to 133 families.

  • delivered food to 34 homebound clients.

  • distributed $2340 in Little Caesar Gift cards to our clients!


  • $14,419.77 was spent on food to stock our pantry for our clients.

  • $1,080.00 was spent on personal and cleaning products for our clients.

  • 62 volunteers donated a total of 928 hours to our mission!
