The Good Sam Mission

OUR STORY

Your purpose and calling in life are often described as where your greatest passion meets the world's deepest needs. For Dr. Bill Warren, this idea led to his life calling, and ultimately the founding of The Good Samaritan Health Center.

In 1995, Dr. Bill Warren began to feel God stir in his heart to meet people's needs in the City of Atlanta with his greatest passion, healthcare. Leaving his successful pediatric practice in Sandy Springs, Dr. Warren began serving "the least of these" out of a local Church's spare room. As often happens when people start partnering with God in His mission, things began to grow rapidly and quickly outgrew Dr. Warrens's capacity. In 1998 The Good Samaritan Health Center was formed and opened for service in 1999 in downtown Atlanta with a staff of eight and a handful of volunteers.

However, the growth wasn't over for the team of Good Sam and the work they were doing in Atlanta. After ten years of development and service in downtown Atlanta, The Center relocated to an expanded facility on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway in 2009. A full-time staff of 40 and 400 volunteers work together to provide high quality medical, dental, mental health, specialty, and health education services to individuals and families in Atlanta that could not otherwise afford it.

As we continue to expand our services, we are encouraged by the constant support from individuals, corporations, Churches, families, and grants that help us fulfill our mission.
