Good Samaritan Foundation

The Good Samaritan Foundation is a  501(C)3 charitable organization registered with the State of North Carolina.  The mission is dedicated to providing last resort financial assistance to people in need, that may see them through a difficult time, improve their quality of life, and strengthen their lives through God and for the Glory of His Kingdom. Our intent is to make a localized impact in the community.

FAITH
Faith is substance.  Faith is evidence.  Hebrews 11: 1 says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.  If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well;  keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?” James 2: 15-16 NIV.

The Bible says faith is something we do, not just what we feel.   Faith is more than sentimentality.  Faith carries compassion.   Faith without works is dead.  It is simply lip service.  Believe me, I can relate to this for too many years. God doesn’t have a timetable though. It is never too late to finish well.

It’s easy to think, “I can’t meet everybody’s needs!  Yep, that’s right.  None of us can. But we can meet some.  What we can do may not make a difference to everybody, but it will make a difference to somebody.

Think of it like this: When the tide went out, hundreds of starfish were stranded on the beach. A little boy began to pick them up and throw the starfish back into the ocean.

A man came along and asked, “What are you doing?” The boy said,” I’m putting the starfish back in the ocean.”  The man said, “But there’s too many!  You can’t make a difference for all of them!”  The boy tossed another starfish into the water, and said, “I bet it makes a difference for that one.”

One-by-one, great opportunities to serve God often come as small opportunities to serve those around us who are in need.

And that is the mission of The Great Samaritan Foundation.

Faith that fizzles out at the finish had a flaw in it from the first.

The Foundation has partnered with the following Outreach Ministries: Second Harvest Food Bank, Feed my Lambs, Anson County Crisis Ministry, Union County Crisis Ministry, Charlotte Rescue Mission, The Dove’s Nest, Samaritan’s Purse, Stop Hunger Now, First Presbyterian Church, Providence Ministries, and the Guilford County Food Bank.
