About the Good Samaritan Center of Excelsior Springs, MO
The Good Samaritan Center was started in 1986 when Father Larry Speichinger called together a dedicated and compassionate group at St. Ann Catholic Church to consider responses to the area's growing number of families asking for help. What began as a St. Vincent De Paul group soon grew into an independent social service agency giving emergency assistance and advocacy to families and individuals in Excelsior Springs and the surrounding rural areas of Clay and Ray Counties, who were lacking or at risk of not having, life's basic necessities.
