Need Increases at Samaritan Center

Posted by Warren Krech on April 29, 2013

You may not see a homeless guy on every corner in Jefferson City, but the need is out there.

Samaritan Center’s Ben DeFeo says they’re helping Mid-Missourians who actually used to be donors themselves. He says increasing numbers of people are looking for help, and once they get it, they’re taking longer to get back on their feet.

DeFeo adds donations of staples from major food companies have fallen off, forcing the Samaritan Center to buy those food items out of its own budget.
