Good Samaritan Fund

The Good Samaritan Fund seeks to provide funding to individuals and families with verifiable emergency needs when other services or funds are unavailable.  Funds may be approved for rent, damage deposit, utilities, medical expenses, child care, transportation, and other critical needs.  A referral is required. *It is important to note that the Good Samaritan Fund is not a program of Catholic Charities; rather, Catholc Charities is the fiscal agent for the Good Samaritan Fund.  Clients are encouraged to contact an agency that they are presently working with to discuss a possible referral to the Good Samaritan Fund.


Referrals to the Good Samaritan Fund are accepted by fax, letter, or email.  Referring agencies may click here for the Good Samaritan Fund Application.  Specific information regarding funding criteria and eligibility can be found on page 3 of the application.  Agencies are encouraged to contact the Fund Coordinator with any questions regarding a request:
