History of Good Samaritan Shelter



Good Samaritan Shelter first came into existance as a temporary evening shelter in various area churches for the homeless in our community. Under the guidance of the North County Project Group, Good Samaritan Shelter was established in 1987. On January 31, 1988, the 28-bed modular shelter at 406 S. Pine Street began providing services.

Good Samaritan, Lompoc began as an idea in 2006 when a group of interested parties came together and formed a task force because a detox facility was needed in the Lompoc community. A building was purchased by a group of investors, renovated to Good Samaritan's specifications, a modular building was installed and landscaping done. In 2007-2008 the building was purchased by Good Samaritan.

In September of 2008, Another Road Detox was opened. This is a 6 bed co-ed facility.

 In January 2012, GSS  reopened the Marks House, in partnership with the City of Lompoc, to provide 19 beds of transitional housing for homeless families. 


In October 2013, GSS opened  Hope House in Lompoc that provides transitional housing in a triplex for homeless families. 

November 2013 marked the completion of Casa de Familia, a 16-unit apartment complex on the GSS Santa Maria Shelter Campus that provides permanent housing for homeless families.
