Welcome to Samaritan House

Since 1974, Samaritan House has been serving low-income families and individuals in San Mateo County. Our services are designed to meet the immediate and basic needs of our clients for food, clothing, shelter, health care, worker resources, and counseling services.

With the help of thousands of volunteers and donors every year, Samaritan House helps meet the basic daily needs of more than 12,000 individuals in our community. All of our services and programs are designed to provide quality resources and effective evaluation to our clients in order to help them become more stable and secure in our community.

Our Mission is to mobilize the resources of our community to help those among us who are in need, while preserving dignity, promoting self-sufficiency, and providing hope.

Thank You for Making Our Holiday Program Possible!

Our holiday program was a huge success this year thanks to the countless hours of work from our volunteers, our incredible doners and our staff. With their help, we did everything from distributing food to hundreds of families to giving toys to thousands of children. To see some of our Holiday Program Highlights, check out this video:
