We Rise By Lifting Others

lifting our neighbors in need, bridging gaps and changing lives

Who We Are

We are the only faith-based, nonprofit mission serving adults and children in Montour County and surrounding areas.   

The mission’s foundation is built on a solid Board of Directors and nearly 100 volunteers who donate countless hours to keep our programs running.

What We Do

We Provide Clothing & Household Items

Free clothing is available to any family who needs it.  Clothing is in excellent condition and sizes are available for all ages.  We also offer household items, bedding, toys, books, etc.  

We Offer Giveaways

A monthly hygiene products giveaway is held the second Tuesday of every month from 9am to Noon and 4pm to 6pm for residents of Montour County.

We Partner

The Good Samaritan Mission partners with the Danville/Riverside Food bank’s Feed A Friend program to help distribute holiday meals. We also partner with other agencies such as AGAPE, The Gatehouse, Columbia Montour United Way, Community Action Agency, Free2BMom and many others to help bridge the gap in services for those in need.

We Educate

The Good Samaritan Mission supports the Bridges out of Poverty “Getting Ahead” classes. The Bridges program brings people from all sectors and economic classes together to improve job retention rates, build resources, improve outcomes and support those who are moving out of poverty.

The Good Samaritan Mission also supports middle and high school students in the Danville School District and Columbia Montour Vo-Tech through The Bigger Opportunities Program.  This program is designed to help break the cycle of poverty through education by providing resources for a better future. 

We Provide for Kids

Many Hands Helping Others program is a community project designed to help children in the Danville School District who are experiencing food insecurity by providing nutritional meals and snacks for the weekend and extended breaks.  Many Hands also provides the students with supplemental clothing, hygiene items and other non-perishable needs.


We Consult

We provide crisis financial consultation to residents of Montour County who may be experiencing difficulty with paying rent/security deposit, appliances, car repairs, etc.  We also provide a Youth Bed Program to children K thru 12 who do not have an adequate bed to sleep on. 

Impact Stories

Jane and Barry Lost Everything In a Fire

Because of The Good Samaritan Mission and their volunteers who helped us, we were able to get clothing, basic necessities, and assistance with a security deposit to rent an apartment for our family to live in because of a house fire.  We are forever grateful!

Beds For Our Girls

My husband passed away a few months ago and I had to sell our house and move into a tiny apartment.  My girls didn’t have a bed to sleep on.  Thanks to the Good Samaritan Mission’s Youth Bed Program, my girls were given brand new beds to sleep on.  I am so thankful that they will get the proper rest they need.
