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.

Community Appreciation Event

Thanks so much to all our friends – supporters, volunteers, elected officials, alumni, and staff – who made our “40th Anniversary Community Appreciation Event” such a tremendous success. Over 250 members of the “Samaritan House Family” turned out for fun, food and festivities at the Elks Lodge.

Co-chairs extraordinaire, Pam Frisella and Suzanne Taylor, really outdid themselves on this party.

State Senator Jerry Hill was eloquent, nostalgic and prophetic as he reviewed where we have been and where we are going.

Everyone enjoyed seeing former Executive Director, John Kelly.

Old friends met new friends.

We are Samaritan House, we are a community, and we are truly the great heart of a great community!
