Why choose this mission? Substance abuse is not a pretty or pleasant thing to think about. At times it can be downright scary & we wonder why we would invest in the lives of those we don’t know. Addictions to drugs & alcohol may not be a personal struggle for you, but maybe it has impacted your coworker or family member. There may be a time in your life where a drug related crime or an intoxicated driver crosses your path. The list can go on, but make no mistake, somehow you have or will be impacted by drug & alcohol abuse.
We invite you to put a face on a person struggling with addiction. They are someone’s loved one. Someone raised them, loves them & knows the addiction is mighty & it knows no bounds. Its overwhelming & lonely, but now let us invite you to picture your coworker or loved one in pain. While their suffering is obvious, think about where they go for help? Who do they talk to if they are struggling? Wouldn’t it be great to share Samaritan’s Hand with them & know that your donation is impacting someone’s life? Invest in a life. Care about a soul who lost in addiction. Give them hope. You can consider your donation a LIFE GIVING INVESTMENT!

We are always looking for more individuals to join this team & keep it exciting & fresh! The team has fun together & not only is it a successful night in raising funds, but we get to hear the testimonies of the clients that have come through our doors.

Hang with our office staff & help them with the quarterly newsletter, Christmas cards, donation drives, gala invites & other office needs that pop up. While this is not a task that is always in need, we would love to have you on our call list when the opportunity arises.

What Our Volunteers Say
During that time I have been blessed beyond description as I see God so active and real for our Samaritan's Hand "family." Most acknowledge that God has brought them where no other program has been able to bring then in their past.
I am so fortunate to see how God works in so many lives, solely because I said yes to serving when initially asked. It's is a pleasure serving so many quality individuals."
