Our Story

Who we are

Providing the community with programs addressing homelessness as well as alcohol and substance abuse

For those in need...
our door is open

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.
