30 Year Celebration

The Samaritan Center found a home 30 years ago when Simi Valley pastors shared that many unhoused people came to their churches seeking help. At the time, Public Action to Deliver Shelter (PADS), a temporary winter shelter, was the only coordinated help for the unhoused.

Those leaders envisioned a centralized place in Simi Valley where the homeless could receive services.

Finding a location for the Samaritan Center proved difficult at first. Eventually, a home was found on the grounds of St. Francis Episcopal Church. The Center would not have existed without the support of the church and community members.

In October, we had our 30th anniversary celebration of the Samaritan Center! Thank you to all our Donors, Sponsors and to all who participated in making the evening so special! We are so grateful of all the love and support we have received over the last 30 years!


Thank you to our 30 Year Celebration sponsors. Your engagement and support helped make this anniversary milestone celebration possible.
