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
