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 improve lives, promote self-sufficiency, and preserve dignity by providing supportive services for all members of our community in need. We also strive to create and provide effective opportunities for community members to share their means, their energy, and their concern for those in need.
Feeding the Hungry in Our Community
Samaritan House’s 21st Annual “Main Event” was held on May 11, 2013. The theme of this event was celebrating all the incredible achievements of our food assistance program.
This video was created to highlight the various aspects of our food program – our kitchen, pantry, dining hall, and Mobile Meals services – as well as discuss the role that Samaritan House plays combatting hunger and food insecurity and providing 145,000 meals every year in San Mateo County, California.
Thank you to volunteer videographer George Uibel with the OPENFRAME for creating this video for Samaritan House.
