Sharing God's Hope and Love to the NWA Community

“We have a family of two siblings who have become homeless - living in a tent outside another family member’s home. The kids report how nice it is to have the SnackPacks so they can have a snack after school. Since there are a total of 15 family members in the house and tent, they eat in shifts and my students don’t eat until late.”

"My wife and I love Samaritan Community Center and every aspect of their ministry. You don't usually think about poverty in a place like NWA until you are directly affected by it, or you step into volunteer opportunities. I am so grateful for the amazing people making such a huge impact in our community!"

"This is a wonderful organization that helps our community. Volunteering for the kids snack packs is especially rewarding just knowing you’re part of something larger in the fight against hunger. The dental program for adults without dental insurance has helped so many as well."

Samaritan
Community Center

We are a grace-driven nonprofit serving the hurting and hungry of Northwest Arkansas with dignity and compassion. We believe we are called to love and serve like Jesus. Since 2002, our organization has grown to include multiple programs and locations. Our Springdale operations center opened in 2004, and two Samaritan Shop thrift stores, located in Rogers and Springdale, which provide financial support to our overall center operations.
