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.
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

Our November/December Volunteer of the Month: Diane S.

Our volunteer of the month is Diane S. Diane plays several roles at Samaritan House, but her favorite and most appreciated role is that of Chairperson for our Sharing Tree Christmas program . Diane has been involved with our Sharing Tree program for 14 years and has been the Chairperson for 8 years. Diane and her team make sure the Christmas needs of our clients and individuals from several area nursing and group homes are met. It is a lot of work, but as you can see by the smile on her face, it brings Diane so much joy. Diane and her husband, Chris, of 53 years grew up in the Romeo Area and also raised their daughter here. When Diane is not busy volunteering, she is busy shopping. If you are interested in learning more about our Sharing Tree Program and how you may be able to help someone in our community, give us a call at 586-336-9956. Thank you Diane for your many years of supporting Samaritan House and our community. We are blessed to have such amazing volunteers!!
If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by and fill out an application, or for more details call Judy at 586-337-2896.
