Terry Peltes: Join in the compassionate outreach at Samaritan House

“Some of the ladies we serve have been victims of domestic abuse or have mental health issues and some have just experienced the terrible misfortune that we all pray never comes to anyone we know or love. They are young, old and in-between and they are all scared, sad, completely vulnerable, desperate, and living on the edge of life. Most feel that they are unworthy of love or kindness and this crippling despair has robbed them of any hope that their tomorrow will be any better than their today.”  

“But all is not lost for them. I’ve witnessed firsthand the life-giving and life-changing effects that the services provided at Samaritan House have on the lives of those we serve. If only for a few hours a day, our sisters and brothers experience the love and compassion of Our Lord through the work of the employees and volunteers. Their isolation is lifted and the Samaritan House becomes their refuge from spending their days not knowing whether they will have something to eat or whether they will have a warm place to sleep. It becomes the place of safety and hope for those who face violence and humiliation on the streets, unsanitary living conditions and the moment-to-moment battle for survival. It is the place where they can rest from a day of constant struggles that none of us could ever imagine.”  

“My family and I find our own fulfillment and redemption in our work at this very special place. My hope and prayer is that together, with the generosity of all donors and volunteers, we will continue to be that place of refuge that brings the hope and love of Jesus Christ to those who are desperate for his help. If anyone has questions about the impact of the work that is done at Sam House or how they can get involved to serve, I’d love to speak with them!”
