Good Samaritan 75th Anniversary

Join us in commemorating a legacy of kindness and community service as Good Samaritan marks its 75th Anniversary! Since our humble beginnings in 1949, we’ve been dedicated to positively impacting the lives of those in need, and we invite you to be a part of this extraordinary milestone.

Learn About Our History

Our humble beginnings mirror the parable of the Good Samaritan caring for a neighbour in need, regardless of who they are or where they are from. A lot has changed since 1949; What has stayed the same is our role in the lives of thousands of people in Alberta and British Columbia. Learn more about Good Samaritan’s rich history below:

Your donation makes a significant difference in the lives of the residents and individuals we serve. It encourages others to join us in our mission of providing compassionate care and services to those in need.

Join our mission by pledging $75 a month to Good Samaritan in honour of our 75th anniversary. Your monthly contribution will allow us to continue transforming lives, providing comfort and resources, and making a lasting impact on those in need. About $900 (or about $75 per month), is the average cost to take a group of residents on a single recreational outing in the community. We can continue building a legacy of kindness, generosity, and positive change.
