"Showing God's love by providing help and healing to those in need."

Our Organization

The Good Samaritan Clinic is a faith-based 501(c) (3) organization offering free health and dental care primarily to the Hispanic community in four South Carolina locations. With the dedication of volunteer physicians, nurses, interpreters, and administrative assistants, as well as the generous support of our funding partners, the clinic is able to serve our communities in the tradition of the Good Samaritan.


Hispanics are one of the nation’s largest and most vulnerable communities. Here in South Carolina, the Hispanic/Latino population growth is among the nation’s highest. South Carolina ranks # 1 in Hispanic growth among all states. Yet more than one third lack access to vital health care services when they are ill or preventive care to help them stay well.
