Samaritan House presents Kids Club as an opportunity to gather our children for different activities every Monday through Thursday from 3-5pm. Volunteers provide a healthy snack, will help facilitate that day’s program and interact with the children for quality time with adults.
The focus of Kids Club is to provide examples of positive and healthy relationships for youth while having fun! Activities may include board games, science experiments, arts and crafts, music, etc. Volunteers can plan on 5-10 school-aged children in attendance at each Kids Club.
Weekday Mornings 9:00am – 10:00am
Provide a hot, healthy breakfast for our residents and join them in playing a few rounds of bingo! Volunteers prepare the meals of their choosing in our fully-equipped kitchen, order takeout or prepare meals/dishes at home. Volunteers are asked to bring small prizes for the bingo winners (household items, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, hygiene items, etc.) – bingo game supplied by Samaritan House.
During Breakfast & Bingo, volunteers serve breakfast, are encouraged to participate in bingo and then cleanup after the meal. Volunteers can plan on 15-20 residents in attendance at Breakfast & Bingo.
Join us for arts and crafts, game night and more! Each night during the week, the men and women in our Single Room Occupancy (SRO) program gather for an evening of fun.
Do you have an idea for a fun activity? Are you a trivia whiz? We are looking for volunteers to share their time and talents with us! Please feel free to bring your suggestions.
Evenings 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Every night of the month, Samaritan House is honored to have a different volunteer group provide (or prepare), then serve dinner to our Single Room Occupancy (SRO) residents! Our Supper Club volunteers become family to our residents by either preparing the meals of their choosing in our fully equipped kitchen, ordering takeout to be delivered or bringing homemade meals/dishes.
These volunteer groups then interact with our residents by serving the food, visiting with the residents while they enjoy the meal together, and then clean up afterwards. Supper Club shifts are every night of the year (including holidays) from 5-7pm at Samaritan House. We look forward to you dining with us! Volunteers can plan on 40-50 residents in attendance for Supper Club.
A dedicated group of Master Gardeners supervise the maintenance of the Samaritan House flower and organic vegetable gardens. Additional groups and individuals are welcome to share the work by doing special projects such as building flower beds, weeding, planting and sprucing up the areas. The products of our garden are shared with both Samaritan House and Tarrant Area Food Bank!
Groups of adults or students can assist with keeping our buildings in excellent condition. We always appreciate professionals who volunteer to be on-call for plumbing, electrical and HVAC problems.
