Our Goal
$275,000
  Storing bulk purchases and large-scale donations is currently a serious logistical problem for us and we have reached the point that we need to construct a 10,000-12,000 sq. ft. temperature-controlled warehouse on our four acres of property in Rogers, just north of our current building. The warehouse would allow us to operate more efficiently and economically and - most importantly - will help us keep food costs down and to expand all of our local feeding programs. We are especially in need of a donation of steel to frame the warehouse. Acquiring the steel would greatly reduce the amount we need to raise and allow us to get started, almost immediately, building the space. Interested in making an in-kind donation of building materials? Contact Debbie Rambo, SCC Executive Director.

   Founded in 1989, the Samaritan Community Center is a nonprofit community service organization that has become a vital resource to Northwest Arkansas neighbors experiencing economic, emotional and spiritual distress. 
   On any given day the waiting rooms in our Springdale and Rogers centers are filled to capacity with clients - young and old, employed and unemployed, healthy and sick, married and single - many of whom have never before asked for personal assistance.
   Through our lunch cafes, food markets, resale stores, health clinic and kids programs, our staff and volunteers freely give unconditional love and assistance to anyone who walks through our doors.
   For many who visit our centers, the most important thing offered is Hope - something that is as individual as the clients we serve. For some hope comes in the form of a hot meal, or having a snackpack of food handed to them as they leave school each Friday, or sacks of groceries to help fill empty cupboards. For others it's a smile and a hug. And for many of our clients, hope is simply spending time in an environment where they are not judged but are loved and helped unconditionally.
   In 2014 the SCC is specifically focusing on providing healthier food options through our feeding programs as part of the statewide effort to reduce obesity, especially in at-risk populations. These efforts include the development of a community garden, the nutritional review of food items included in our SnackPacks for Kids program (and substitution of healthier alternatives when financially feasible), and the offering of Cooking Matters nutritional cooking classes through Samaritan Market program.
  During this past year over 200,000 people in four Arkansas counties were helped through SCC programsSo whether you are looking for information on how to donate or volunteer to our center, need directions to our community centers or resale stores, or would like to find out how to take advantage of the program services we offer - you can find it all right here!
