Basic NeedsGood Samaritan Haven is central Vermont’s only homeless shelter, providing housing and services for homeless people in our community.
Good Samaritan Haven is a place where people can be served with dignity in their time of need.
Good Sam serves more than 300 of our homeless neighbors each year in Washington, Lamoille, and Orange counties. Good Samaritan Haven is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that offers short-term, emergency, overnight shelter to homeless adults. The shelter does not currently provide space for families due to the complex nature of serving families and single adults, in light of the design of the shelter building and staffing.
Each evening, we offer a nutritious, home-cooked meal provided by community members or churches. We also provide for basic needs, including laundry detergent and grooming supplies. The shelter also offers supportive services for all of our guests including housing and employment assistance, case management and referral services, assistance obtaining mainstream benefits, financial support to lease or maintain a unit, and essential goods support.
