Good Samaritan Rescue MissionOgemaw Hills indirectly supports the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission in Bay City through prayer, raising awareness and the ministry of Chris Overley, a member of our congregation.
The Good Samaritan Rescue Mission provides emergency shelter services to single women and mothers with children. While at the Mission clients receive nutritious meals and personal care items to meet their physical needs as well as encouragement and support to meet their emotional and spiritual needs. During their stay clients are referred to agencies within the community that partner with GSRM to meet their overall needs.
In September 2006, Good Samaritan opened it's Intact Family Wing. Two rooms were opened to provide shelter for intact families (mom, dad, and children or a single dad with children). On April 16, 2007 a third room was dedicated and opened to further increase the capacity to assist families in their time of need. With the opening of the new wing Good Samaritan Rescue Mission is better able to serve homeless families in need.
On February 26, 2008 GSRM opened its new Men’s Emergency Shelter. Now everyone in the Bay area that is homeless can have a warm bed, and a hot meal.
