About Us

Providing the community with programs
that address homelessness as well as
alcohol and substance abuse.

For those in need... our door is open.

Good Samaritan Shelter first came into existence as a temporary evening shelter in various area churches for the communities homeless. 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 was done. In 2007-2008 the building was purchased by Good Samaritan.

We facilitate safe learning spaces.

Good Samaritan Shelter provides the community with many programs addressing homelessness as well as alcohol and substance abuse. We provide assistance in countless ways – providing shelter, affordable housing, clean & sober living, drug & alcohol treatment, outreach, and education within the local community.
