Good Samaritan Ministries provides two services that assist vulnerable individuals and families with both immediate and long-term housing and financial stability:
Housing Assessment and Resource Team (HART)
Good Samaritan Ministries is the central intake point for anyone in Ottawa County who is experiencing a housing crisis. We provide a centralized approach to identify the most helpful resources for those facing homelessness.
Homelessness prevention assistance for those at imminent risk of homelessness
Housing search assistance for anyone seeking to secure stable, affordable housing
Rapid re-housing assistance for those currently homeless
Referral to shelter services or other housing assistance
Referral to other supportive services that can help to stabilize housing
Community Housing Partnership (CHP)
The Community Housing Partnership provides short-term rent assistance to homeless individuals and families in the community. Housing assistance is paired with case management, a housing plan, mentoring support, home maintenance education, and aftercare services.
