Thank You for Your Help


Samaritan House would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you, our readers and supporters, for your partnership over the past year. Samaritan House has set goals to make homelessness in Northwest Montana rare, brief and nonrecurring.  If we are going to be successful in this effort we will need your support.

Today, the shelter is full and we are making arrangements to make room for more. The weather report says that it will be a very cold Christmas this year. Recently, the Flathead Beacon published an article about Samaritan House that relays how you can help Samaritan House.  

Flathead Beacon - "Making Ends Meet at the End of the Year"

Have an incredible holiday season as you reflect on what has happened in your life. Enjoy and cherish the loved ones who matter to you. Remember that you play a role, daily, affecting the lives of those around you. This world would not be the same without your contributions of love, empathy, help and kindness. You make this planet better for being on it and we appreciate everything you have done for Samaritan House.

Have a wonderful time of joy, peace, and reflection as we approach Christmas and the new year.

2017 Great Fish Community Challenge



I hope this update finds you enjoying everything we love about the Flathead Valley in summer, Flathead Cherries and beautiful August sunsets.  
This summer, Samaritan House continues to be at or near capacity in our attempts to shelter and assist our local homeless neighbors while funding remains tight.  It was well publicized in 2016 the financial difficulties we experienced while losing a much needed federal grant.  One way we are trying to address that gap this year is by participating in the 2017 Great Fish Community Challenge being organized by the Whitefish Community Foundation. 
The 2017 Great Fish Community Challenge is an innovative fundraiser that helps the community donate to their favorite participating nonprofit by providing a matching grant incentive.  The campaign will go until September 15th. 
If you would like to donate online to Samaritan House and help us qualify for a matching grant just go to the 2017 Great Fish Community Challenge, pick Samaritan House and donate.  Pick, Click and Give.  
Or if you would like to mail a donation to Samaritan House then print the Official Donation Form include your donation and mail it to:
Whitefish Community Foundation
Thank You very much for your consideration of Samaritan House.
It is very appreciated.
Sincerely,

Chris Krager, Director
Samaritan House
