Good Samaritan Society Celebrates Founder's Day

Thursday, September 16, 2010

The Good Samaritan Society-Holstein is joining Good Samaritan Society locations across the nation in celebrating the beginnings of The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society.

The Society, founded by Rev. August "Dad" Hoeger, was incorporated on Sept 29th, 1922, and opened its first home, a six-room rented house, on March 1, 1923, in Arthur, N.D.

Over the years, the Society has grown from serving a handful of residents to being the nations' largest not-for-profit provider of senior care and services.

"Founder's Day is a wonderful way to reflect on our heritage and celebrate the many achievements of our residents and staff members," says Amanda Nobles, Administrator. "It is a wonderful time to visit a family member or other loved one who calls our center home."

The Good Samaritan Society-Holstein is part of The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, a not-for-profit organization that owns and operates more than 240 long-term care centers and retirement living centers across the country. The Good Samaritan Society's mission is to share God's love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that "In Christ's Love, Everyone Is Someone."
