Good Samaritan Network (GSN) is a collaborative/network of nonprofits in Hamilton County. GSN utilizes two serving approaches, Direct and InDirect services, and in part is designed to ensure efficiency and communication among the different agencies, social services, nonprofits, local government, pantries, and businesses - as together we serve the needs of Hamilton County residents who are at-risk or underserved.

A community thrives when its residents are able to provide for themselves and their families. Meeting the needs of people in emergencies or crisis is our passion. We do that by serving our community directly (clients) and indirectly (Network). We are convinced that a combination of things affect the stability of individuals and families, including: education and training, sufficient income, and even an understanding of health issues. Addressing these and other life issues affect the basic needs of people - and that in turn strengthens our community. Our goal is to provide a hand-up and strong opportunities for personal empowerment. We are consistently multitasking and working together to address individual, family, community and Network needs, all designed to achieve a healthy, strong and vibrant Hamilton County.

The Good Samaritan Network was formally organized in March 1995, evolving from a group of programs and services in existence since early 1980. GSN's indirect services involve the network, which is a collaborative group of non-profits located in Hamilton County who collaborate and support one another within the Good Samaritan Network. One primary objective is its effort to assess the true needs of clients and assist them with county-wide support services while reducing duplication of effort.

GSN is the umbrella organization, or the hub, that coordinates and develops various efforts and opportunities for our clients with consistent programming and services. The use of a common database empowers network participants with a reliable means of reference checking and provides decision-making opportunity prior to serving client(s).
