Good Samaritan Services provides safe, comfortable housing for men, women, and women with children experiencing homelessness in Lancaster & Chester Counties. 

 Our work is based on Christian principles and though we gladly accept people of all faiths, we ascribe God’s power to help our residents through their struggles and to allow us to help them as best as we can. The parable of the Good Samaritan teaches us to love our neighbors by taking care of their physical and emotional needs. We believe that God loves the poor and those experiencing homelessness and we strive to serve them by helping them get back on their feet.
