El Buen Samaritano

About the organization

For 30 years, El Buen has been building healthy, resilient and vibrant communities by addressing the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of families. We do this by offering coordinated medical, literacy, food stability and spiritual support services to promote healthy behaviors for the family. Unlike other healthcare settings, El Buen provides all these services and in one location.

Our unique approach to healthcare supports a person’s physical and mental health – a keystone for wellbeing and resilience. Uniquely, we offer comprehensive services that are family- focused and person-centered.

As responsible stewards of the funds donated by individuals, community groups, businesses and foundations, we invest exclusively in programs and services for individuals, families and our community. Because of these sound financial decisions Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator, gave us an overall rating of four stars.
