Welcome to the Good Sams Foundation website.
The Foundation was established in 1999 to provide ongoing finances and resources to the work established by Sisters of the Good Samaritan.
For over 150 years in Australia the Sisters of the Good Samaritan (affectionately known as the Good Sams) have provided refuge, education and hope to women and children in need.
Some of the key projects include providing safe accomodation to women and children escaping domestic violence who would otherwise find themselves homeless. We are currently implementing prevention programs and education programs with the aim of reducing controlling behaviour, in schools and the community.
