No Appointment Needed. Office opens at 10 am and all clients are served in the order they arrived.
We prefer that people come in person to the church office to see a Good Samaritan. People who are on premises will get served first, before phone calls. All financial assistance requests require an in-person visit to GSM or Catholic Community Services.
Hours: Monday -Friday, 10 am – 2pm. Hours may vary and are subject to change. Remember, Good Samaritans are volunteers.

Pets are not allowed in the dining room. There are limited cages to put them in while you are dining. Thank you for understanding this is a city law.
