Mission To aid low income residents in our community who need assistance with temporary financial emergencies.
Impact In 2016 we spent $80,055 assisting 230 families with rent, heat, car repairs, and medical supplies. Additionally we helped children at through the Three Rivers Healthy Families and The Rural Infant Services Program of the NN – MP Community Services Board. Our program is ongoing.
Needs Our need of monetary donations is ongoing.
Background The Samaritan Group was organized in 1991 by concerned citizens and business leaders to help families in Gloucester County with temporary financial emergencies. We are governed by a Board of Directors and cooperate with the local Department of Social Services. We are a 501C3 tax-exempt non-profit corporation with bylaws. It is our purpose to develop resources and oversee their disbursement to aid individuals and families in need in Gloucester County.
CEO Statement Samaritan Group, Inc. has no paid employees. We are all volunteers and have operated this way since our group was established in 1992, 
Board Chair Statement
My experience with the Samaritan Group over the last six years and especially over the last two years as chairman has opened my eyes to the many and varied need of the residents of Gloucester County who find themselves in temporary financial need. The stories behind the applicants show that many of our reisents just need a "hand up" and not a "hand out". Most would rather not ask for help.
Also, I am amazed at the generosity of our residents, religious organizations, businesses and foundations. Our goal over the last two years is to make the community aware of our mission and assistance by speaking to groups, individuals and organizations. We are proud to have been able to operate with strictly private contrbutions. 2016 is the 25th anniversary of the Samaritan Group, over which time we have assisted over 2800 families and dispersed over $1,000,000.00 in assistance.
