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.
Samaritan House Holiday Program
During the Holiday Season, there are so many ways you can help your neighbors in need have a warm and wonderful holiday. You or your group can donate food, coats, toys, create cheerful cards and decorations, or give your time by lending helping hands.
Here are some ways you can help community members who are less fortunate:
Volunteers – sort and distribute toys or food to community members.
Children – help make cards and decorations to brighten the holidays at our Safe Harbor Shelter and for clients to enjoy.
