Good Samaritan focuses on families in crisis who are experiencing an unexpected (yet verifiable) emergency beyond the client’s control.
Our staff strives to make a “long-term” difference in a person’s life by using the occasion of “short-term” emergency assistance.
Our case management team works hard to supply information and make appropriate referrals, to budget counsel and to advocate for our clients.
Our case management team also works with area churches to provide guidance in handling the multitude of requests calls that churches receive on a weekly basis.
Our case management team also works hard to possess a very thorough knowledge of what emergency services and funds are available throughout our community. Our goal is to create a network of emergency assistance and referral. AND “If we can’t help, we should know (or be able to find out) what organizations can assist.”
Our case managers attempt to help all clients determine the basic cause of their emergency so that appropriate changes made in the household, as well as assistance from our office, will work together in order to avoid a reoccurrence of the crisis in the future (i.e. opportunities versus “band-aids”, long term solutions versus short term fixes).
