The Good Samaritan Services has many opportunities for you to get involved. We welcome participation from individuals and groups. There’s always something to do. We could really use your help!

Organize a group work day

Help us maintain our buildings or fix them up. We have plenty of opportunities for this kind of work including painting and gardening. Build your team while helping those who serve the needs of people experiencing homelessness in your community.

Lead an educational program

At Good Samaritan Services, we pride ourselves on the wide scope of meaningful and useful programs we have available for our residents. We have offered a broad range of interesting topics including computer classes, knitting, and healthy living. If you have a passion about something, there is a good chance we would love to have you share it with our residents! When you enrich their lives, you enrich your own.

Become a mentor

Our mentorship program lets you help a resident directly. You will commit to spend at least one hour a week in one-on-one meeting with the resident to help him or her through anything they may be facing. It is a great way to have a profound impact on someone’s life. Providing someone in need with individual attention is a valuable gift.

Cook a meal

Preparing food for others is a touching way to show you care.  Our residents love home cooked meals! This is a great way to help those experiencing homelessness in your area. Also, you can prepare meals for families attending Good Sam Community Dinners, program workshops, special meetings or events. Feeding others feeds your soul.

Collect things we need

Run a drive with your group or friends to help collect things we need. This is a simple way to show the generosity of our communities. We always need gift cards to supermarkets, bus tokens, and food. To visit our Phoenixville wish list click here and to visit current Ephrata wish list click here.

To show our appreciation

Every year the Good Samaritan Services holds a Volunteer Appreciation event – it’s our way of saying “THANK YOU” to all the wonderful people who help us. We also hold semi-annual Volunteer Orientation meetings where you will learn more about our organizational culture, mission and goals. We love our volunteers!
