creating stability

The Good Samaritan Ministries Thrift Store provides opportunities for job and vocational training, recycling, and volunteer opportunities. By providing on-the-job training, we are giving community members a hand up, not a hand-out. We want to see them succeed, feel part of the community, and become self-sufficient.
