Special Announcement!

$375,000 Matching Grant Awarded

The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that a $375,000 three-year matching grant, simply called SP3, has been awarded to Samaritan’s Place (SP).  “This matching grant provides a timely boost to our on going efforts in securing future operations and our desired quality care of orphans”, says FSP President Marc Morris.

Specifically designated for long-term sustainability plans and projects, most of the matching funds will be added to SP’s growing endowment, while portions will be used for property expansion and micro-farming, improved maintenance and infant care facilities.  The grant donor, Praise Cathedral (Greer, SC), will be matching up to $125,000 raised each year for three years (2014-16).

“We are very grateful to Praise’s leadership, particularly Jerry Madden and Mark Hill, for believing in Samaritan’s Place and being willing to challenge the others to invest as well”, states FSP Chairman L. Kent Berry.  The Friends of SP board invites you to join the SP3 Matching Grant campaign, which officially launches November 15, 2013.

Each dollar you give will be matched! Our SP kids are worth it!

Complete your Life & Family

One of the most compelling images in the Bible is adoption. The concept of adoption plays out in the redemption language God uses of his children. From God creating humankind in his image to the fall of the human race in the Garden to the redeeming act of Jesus Christ upon the Roman cross, God has pursued us in order to bring us into his family once more.

Today is the Name of Every Orphan, Tomorrow is too Late.

There is an estimated 153,000,000 orphans in the world. A large majority of orphans and street kids do not know where their next meal is coming from. They do not have a safe or secure place to spend the night. They do not live with either their mother or father. It only takes one caring person to make a lifelong difference in the life of an orphan. Every child deserves safety and stability; a place to call home, regular meals, loving caregivers.
