Our Mission:


Fish Samaritan House is a non-profit organization that has been serving the impoverished in Youngstown since 1968. Our goal has always been to provide those less fortunate with the necessities of life, including food and clothing. We collaborate with generous community partners and donors to provide for people in need, providing them with comfort and peace of mind.


The Samaritan House Thrift Store

The Fish Samaritan House Thrift Store is an affordable resource many use to find low cost clothing, furniture, and many other necessary household items. Our store is filled with a variety of “treasures” including brand name clothing and accessories, vintage and modern furniture, home décor and more. All inventory is received through donations and are sold in our store; proceeds from the store are then used for the advancement of a local families’ lives.


For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
— Matthew 25:35
