PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - The Good Samaritan Ministries is back open today in a new, larger facility in Port St. Lucie after it was evicted last week.
Dozens went to the food pantry today in the Business Park shopping center about a mile north of it's old location. Good Samaritan Ministries was evicted after their previous landlord said they were feeding wild raccoons, building without a permit, and not paying rent on time.
Employees are glad they re-opened in time to keep helping families in need. "We feel so amazingly blessed to have a space, a wonderful brand new large space to be able to accommodate you know the needs of the community," said Sara O'Leary with Good Samaritan Ministries
It will also soon be reopening it's thrift store, and will continue to have nightly church services, a shelter, and re-entry programs. There are also plans to open a soup kitchen.
