• About Samaritan Fellowship

    Since 1958, the Samaritan Fellowship, a nonprofit ministry, has strived to carry out the Lord’s admonition to help our neighbor. Our purpose is to help those who have exhausted every available means for providing adequate shelter, utilities, medical care, fuel, vehicle repair, short-term shelter, food, clothing, and other emergency services. We serve families living in the Carlisle Area School District, South Middleton School District, and Middlesex Township.

If you would like to refer someone:

Samaritan Fellowship accepts only electronic referrals from your organization for clients seeking assistance from Samaritan Fellowship.  We no longer accept faxed referrals.

Referrals are required for all residents of shelters, public housing and those with housing choice vouchers. Absence of a referral can result in an applicant not being interviewed, and an important need going unaddressed. We very much appreciate the effort put into creating and sending a referral.

Our e-mail address for referrals is


We will periodically check this e-mail account during the week and up until about 8:00 PM Friday evening.

We also request that you consider using the Samaritan Fellowship referral form, although your organization’s standard referral letter is an acceptable substitute.

The Samaritan Fellowship Referral Form includes a confidential section in which the referring case manager or other party may include additional information that may be helpful in making an assessment of need.  This section will be kept in strict confidentiality within Samaritan Fellowship.

Please disseminate this information to all persons in your organization who make referrals to us.  Also, please send us the e-mail addresses of those persons so we can include them in future information from Samaritan Fellowship.
