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 planning for scheduled events and our approach to operating. Currently, in terms of events, this includes the cancellation of all live fundraising events, and special programs. Tentatively, our BourbonQue fundraising event is scheduled for June 26. Updates can always be found on our website and related social media sites.
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 the length of government-mandated shelter-in-place orders, bans on mass gatherings, and social-distancing policies and recommendations.
Thank you for understanding. We feel this is the best decision model for our County, community, and for the safety of all.
