Good Samaritan Network (GSN) is a collaborative/network of nonprofits in Hamilton County. GSN utilizes two serving approaches, Direct and InDirect services, and in part is designed to ensure efficiency and communication among the different agencies, social services, nonprofits, local government, pantries, and businesses - as together we serve the needs of Hamilton County residents who are at-risk or underserved.
A community thrives when its residents are able to provide for themselves and their families. Meeting the needs of people in emergencies or crisis is our passion. We do that by serving our community directly (clients) and indirectly (Network). We are convinced that a combination of things affect the stability of individuals and families, including: education and training, sufficient income, and even an understanding of health issues. Addressing these and other life issues affect the basic needs of people - and that in turn strengthens our community. Our goal is to provide a hand-up and strong opportunities for personal empowerment. We are consistently multitasking and working together to address individual, family, community and Network needs, all designed to achieve a healthy, strong and vibrant Hamilton County.
Partner with Good Samaritan Network to serve the residents of Hamilton County in a network-wide collaboration.

COVID 19 Impact / Information
As a public health precaution in relation to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we have had to adjust our programs, planning for scheduled events as well as our approach to operating.
Many organizations are faced with difficult decisions during these uncertain times, and it is particularly challenging because of the uncertainty regarding how long the virus’s threat will last and social-distancing policies and recommendations, etc.
Just like our staff, volunteers, donors, and clients, everyone's health and safety are our top priorities and at the heart of decisions we make in this ever-evolving situation.
We are accepting donations with limited no contact approach. And we are committed to providing clear information about our new approaches/changes during this pandemic until further notice. If you have any questions about safety or health concerns, or donations or volunteering, please look on this site for more details or contact us (317-842-2603, x200).
