The Samaritan Center


One of Shepherd of the Valley’s outreach programs is serving a hot meal to the homeless once a month at the Samaritan Center in Simi Valley. We serve a picnic style dinner of fried chicken, potato salad, vegetables, rolls, and cookies the first Wednesday of each month from 4:45 – 6:00. The Samaritan Center is located at 280 Royal Ave, Simi Valley. If you would like to volunteer to help with this ministry please contact Yvonne Baird at (805) 584-2521.

The Samaritan Center is dedicated to help the homeless in Simi Valley. They work with each individual to access the services.
