Our Vision, Our Mission, & Our Roots
Established in 2004, Good Samaritan Outreach is a community nonprofit agency, catering to military veterans and non-veteran personnel from around the greater McAlester region. With a wide network and encompassing services, we do our best to leverage resources and connections from within the community for the betterment of our nation's disadvantaged.
Open to all honorably discharged and currently enlisted personnel, we are capable of helping hundreds of men and women every year. We optimize our efforts by keeping everything in house and under one roof. No one slips through the cracks here. Whether in the form of scholarships, certification programs, or corporate recruitment services, we make transitioning to the civilian world a lot easier.
IT'S AN HONOR TO HELP THOSE VETERANS & PATRIOTS WHO WANT TO SERVE OUR SOCIETY AND OUR COUNTRY!
OUR MISSION & Roots of GSO
