Project Good Samaritan

Project Good Samaritan is a mission of West Virginia American Baptist Churches that provides financial support to assist paying medical, transportation, food, and/or lodging expenses temporarily for patients or family members of hospitalized patients at twelve (12) hospitals around the state.

The project began in 1983 and came under the umbrella of the WV chapter of American Baptist Women’s Ministries in 1991 (see “letter” below). FBC of Hurricane member Suzanna Bradbury is the state coordinator. She recently stated annual income to the project from WV American Baptist churches is typically about $20,000, but stated the need is more in the range of $30,000 per year. If you would like to contribute directly to this mission, contributions can be made through the church by indicating “Good Samaritan Project” on the memo line.
