You can be a hero and make a difference! All money contributed to the It's Good To Be Home fund goes directly towards providing rental assistance to single mothers in our Bridge of Hope @ Good Samaritan Services and Permanent Housing Services programs in Lancaster & Chester Counties.
Our campaign, It's Good To Be Home, was created because at Good Samaritan Services, we firmly believe that families are stronger, healthier, and more successful when they are in their own housing. Homelessness and housing insecurity has traumatic effects on mothers and children. Mothers often experience depression for several years after experiencing a housing crisis. When children experience homelessness or housing insecurity their mental health, physical health and educational performance is negatively impacted.
So they can quickly transition to permanent housing and steer clear of the long list of negative consequences that come with an episode of homelessness, Good Samaritan Services provides nearly $100,000 every year in rental assistance to families at risk of becoming homeless who are often living doubled up or facing eviction; as well as to mothers and children who are already homeless. We provide professional case management services to help families work towards self-sufficiency. We provide support to nearly 80 families every year.
