Working closely with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Church World Service, Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries has helped more than 20,000 refugees begin life anew by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through gifts given ‘to the least of these’ whatever their need may be. Services offered refugees and asylum seekers include housing, food, clothing, legal aid, transportation, family reunification and counseling.
Throughout the year volunteer work groups participate in the various programs of Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries. We rely on these “missionaries” to provide materials for construction or repair of our facilities at Casa Compasión and Los Fresnos, to assist with emergency repairs for storm-damaged homes of needy families, and other tasks. This mission work requires careful planning by work groups.
