For over 35 years, the board of directors, staff and volunteers of Cumberland Good Samaritans continue to have a mission to serve the unmet needs of the people of Cumberland County. The organization strives each day to take one need at a time and determine what can be done to improve a person’s circumstances or situation. Lives are being changed for the better with a hand up through direct services and social service programs. This is made possible through the revenues generated by a large thrift store where quality, affordable items perfect for both bargain shoppers and those on a budget can be found. The necessary funding is used to operate many programs where lasting change is being made for the families and individuals of our community. These programs range from maintaining the largest stocked food pantry in Cumberland County, to providing emergency support services, educational scholarships, and resources to help you find your next job. We also work with a variety of community partners to make services like drug rehabilitation available to our community.
