Get Involved

Good Samaritan Haven relies on community support to operate the shelter and to provide services to our guests.

There are a number of ways you can help support the Good Samaritan Haven, whether it’s through a donation of money, your time, or goods and services.

Donate: We rely on the generosity of people like you to operate our shelter and provide services. Good Samaritan Haven is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Be sure to check with your employer to learn if they provide matching gifts for charitable contributions. You can help us transform the lives of those experiencing homelessness. Donate here.

Volunteer:  Volunteers play a crucial role in the Good Samaritan Haven’s services. Good Samaritan Haven has a variety of volunteer opportunities available for all ages, and can accommodate either groups or individuals. We are currently experiencing a shortage of volunteers at the shelter, and would love to have your help. Please review the volunteer opportunities available or contact us with questions.

Prepare A Meal: Each night we serve a free meal for shelter guests that has been prepared by volunteers. Inquiries from individuals, groups or service organizations interested in cooking are welcome. You can cook a meal once a month or bring a side dish to supplement the meal. Homemade cookies and holiday pies make our guests feel a little more like they are home. For more information, please contact the Food Service Coordinator at (802) 479-2294 or by e-mail info@goodsamaritanhaven.org
