Samaritan House Ministries (SHM) has been operating since 1986 (Reg. Charity # 107951790 RR0001). SHM is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, representing the fields of health care, education, business, and social and spiritual services. Our mission statement reads: “Laboring together with one vision… to help those in need.” We strive to help people from a holistic perspective, addressing physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual needs. This model is also the basis of the medicine wheel in aboriginal cultures. Our logo depicts the medicinal wheel along with the cross representing our motivation as a Christian organization called by Jesus to reach out and help those in need.
