Good Samaritan Program

gspThe Good Samaritan Program, founded in 1987, provides assistance to the poor and needy of our community 365 days of the year. Working from the Good Samaratin House on the northwest corner of South Temple and C Street, volunteers provide thousands of sack lunches and other resources each month. The program functions under the direction of The Very Reverend Martin Diaz, Rector of The Cathedral of the Madeleine. The Good Samaritan Program relies on the generous support of its benefactors and the many volunteers who staff the program's services.
