GOOD SAMARITAN HAVEN
A place where people are served with dignity in their time of need
Good Samaritan Haven provides overnight shelter and support services for people experiencing homelessness in central Vermont.
We operate four facilities with 74 shelter beds, provide nightly dinners courtesy of community members
and churches, supply basic needs such as clothing, toiletries and laundry, and offer other support services.
All made possible by generous community donations.
Good Samaritan Haven’s Emergency Shelter Program serves approximately 250 of our homeless neighbors each year. It is the only homeless shelter in Washington, Lamoille, and Orange counties. The shelter has a thirty bed capacity with 19 male and 11 female beds.
Good Samaritan Haven’s PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) Program provides services to those experiencing homelessness with serious mental illness and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.
Each evening, Good Samaritan Haven offers a nutritious, home-cooked meal provided by community members or churches. We also provide for basic needs, including laundry detergent and grooming supplies.
