We Rise By Lifting Others
We are a faith based, nonprofit mission
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. Our Board members are qualified leaders in the community. These board members work directly with the financially disadvantaged individuals in our area. This allows on-hand experience and guidance on how to deal with this population of individuals and their families.
The Good Samaritan Mission is run primarily by volunteers who give countless hours of their time to keep our programs running. The GSM has one paid full-time employee, an Executive Director, who is responsible for The Good Samaritan Mission Vision, Mission and Statement of Faith.
Statement of Faith in Action
The Good Samaritan Mission is a Christian Ministry. We originated as an outreach of the Danville Riverside Area Christian Ministries (DRACM) to Montour County and the Danville Area School District, and have expanded our scope of services and service area over time. We continue to rely on the prayers and support of the churches in our community, plus other organizations and individuals, and report to them on a regular basis.
The Good Samaritan Mission endeavors to follow, and derives its name from, the teaching of Christ’s parable of the Good Samaritan. Our focus is service to our economically disadvantaged neighbors, We seek to meet their material needs by offering a “cup of cold water” in Christ’s name through the provision of free clothing, appliances, hygiene items, winter boots, socks and underwear, meals, uniforms, and financial assistance in crisis situations. We likewise seek to meet their spiritual needs through prayer, informal counseling, and verbal and written explanations of the Gospel of Christ.
We are open to and readily serve persons of all faiths, including those who have no faith. We do not discriminate on any basis, including race, creed, or social background. We value and seek to preserve the dignity, freedom, and oral respect of each individual. We endeavor to be good stewards of the financial and material resources entrusted to our care. We seek no earthly rewards.
The Good Samaritan Mission is a faith-based organization created to meet the needs of the economically disadvantaged individuals in Montour County and Danville Area School District. The needs are varied and change as additional needs are recognized. The Good Samaritan Mission provides all services free of charge.
We strive to be open to meeting the financial and spiritual needs of low income individuals. We hope to help break the cycle of poverty in the Danville Community.
We are an organization dedicated to providing free services to those in need living in the Danville community and surrounding areas.
