"I am a single mom trying to make ends meet. I work and go to school full time. I get no help from my ex-husband. It is very hard to make ends meet. If it wasn't for your ministries' help, I don't know what I would have done. Because of your help, I was able to keep my water on, feed my son, and have gas to get to work. Because of your generosity, my son had a wonderful Christmas. I am so very grateful for everything you have done for us. I hope that one day I will be able to do the same. We truly are blessed to have such angels as yourselves. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.❤ " - M

"What you do for us is unbelievable.  When I say I really NEVER, in my wildest dreams, would have gotten an opportunity like this, I mean that 110%.  Seriously, what you are doing here is making such an impact, for (my son) and myself alone...we are able to completely redirect the course of our lives for the better and I will never ever ever be able to tell you how grateful I am for that!" - J

  
"Samaritan Inn is kind of like the stone soup story.  If everyone would contribute something whether it be time, talents, paper products, or a financial donation it would lighten the burden of those who faithfully bring their portion in double amounts in order to help another star fish make it in life with a new start and  attitude.  It’s such a blessing to see someone go through a transformation and leave the Samaritan Inn better than when they first arrived.  No longer downtrodden but confident about themselves because of God’s love."
  

"For me to be a part of the Food For Thought program through Samaritan Ministries has been nothing but a blessing from God. Having the opportunity to go and receive additional knowledge of Quickbooks, which I had no knowledge of, and to also learn about how to start a business and all that is required for that has opened my eyes and mind to a variety of things I can do to be a more productive person. I can update my resume’ to make it more appealing to employers, assist my church, and feel better about myself. Thank you Samaritan Ministries and Food for Thought, I couldn’t have achieved that without your generosity." - J

"Lorraine Vickery heard of my situation and decided to give me a chance. She has taken me into the Samaritan Ministry to get a new beginning.  I have grown as a person in so many ways since being there.  I have "myself"  back.  I have a purpose in my life again.  Samaritan Ministries gave me a chance at life on earth when nobody else would.  I now have a life with God and am working at being reunited with my son.  My future is much brighter; I HAVE a future now and it’s thanks to God and Samaritan Ministries." - T
