About the Company

Good Samaritan Society

Why the Society?

The heart and soul of who we are as people is relationships. The work of the Society focuses on relationships—relationships between staff members and those who we serve, between staff members and other staff members and between the Society and the communities that we serve. We realize that we have been called into these relationships. Acknowledging God's Spirit at work in the midst of these relationships and having faith in God's ability to carry out what we could not do alone is what gives us strength and allows us to do the work we do. If you find this kind of work inspiring, then maybe a career within the Good Samaritan Society is right for you.

Our commitment to those we serve

No matter what our personal beliefs may be, each person within the Society is challenged to emulate Jesus, as portrayed in the Bible, focusing on eight traits in particular: Love, Compassion, Honesty, Perseverance, Joy, Humility, Acceptance, and Courage. It's our challenge to discover how Jesus modeled these traits and what they mean for each of us within our daily work and relationships with others. This is our goal. This is The Good Samaritan Society Way
