The Good Samaritan Center
The Good Samaritan Center is a private, non-profit social service agency. It is funded by churches, private contributions, and fundraising.
The Center was started in 1972 under the direction and financial support of seven Jackson churches. Since that time, The Good Samaritan Center has grown to include a main office in Jackson and a branch in Laurel, Mississippi.
Good Samaritan focuses on families in crisis who are experiencing an unexpected (yet verifiable) emergency beyond the client’s control.
Our staff strives to make a “long-term” difference in a person’s life by using the occasion of “short-term” emergency assistance.
