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. We do so while preserving dignity, promoting self-sufficiency, and providing hope.
Come volunteer with us this holiday season!
Every year, our holiday program helps ensure that our neighbors enjoy their November and December holidays. We do so by providing extra food, toys for children, and coats to keep families warm.
We invite members of our community to join us again this year as we share in the joy of the season. Please see our volunteer page to learn about more about our holiday opportunities or fill out an application to volunteer today!
