"Samaritan House is a homeless shelter and transitional living program in Kalispell, Montana. The mission of the Samaritan House is to provide shelter and basic needs for homeless people, while fostering self-respect and human dignity."
We accomplish this task by partnering with the community in several key areas:
Housing: Samaritan House provides food, housing, resources, and case management for the homeless in Kalispell and beyond the Flathead Valley. We served 34,860 meals, 1,350 people, including nearly 200 families and 225 Veterans.
Our Veteran's Program is dedicated to assisting homeless United States veterans by providing resources allowing them access to physical and mental health check ups. Along with these services, we also provide affordable housing.
Volunteerism: Samaritan House owes a great deal of thanks to the countless individuals who have personally volunteered over the years. Tasks ranging from outdoor manual labor to building projects and meal preparations have been carried out and completed thanks to the generosity and kindness of people willing to help us.
Fundraising: Because we are a nonprofit organization, the majority of our finances come from fundraising. This is an endless and tiring process but we old not be able to exist without the partnership of the community. Some of our best memories have come from the fundraisers we host or participate in, such as: Cowboy Up Auction, Annual Raffle, Fish Fry, Cookbook
Community involvement: Ending homelessness in Kalispell will benefit everyone, so we feel a sense of urgency in doing our part to partner with the entire community.
