Good Samaritan Rescue Mission


WTA recently completed a 2,000 s.f. renovation near the main entrance of the Good 
Samaritan Rescue Mission. The Rescue Mission, the only other Bay County homeless shelter, is licensed only for families and adults. Those between ages 12 and 17 can’t stay at the 
shelter without a parent or guardian. In February, 2019 that changed when the 
Samaritan Youth Shelter, a 10-bed emergency shelter for unaccompanied youth of this age group. 

It includes 5 beds for girls and 5 for boys. The youth shelter is isolated from the rest of the
rescue mission. The space includes a locked 
vestibule with a staff area as well as one door to a unit for boys and one door to a unit 
for girls. Each unit includes community space, a bathroom, and a group sleeping area. The open style maximizes the space and improves safety.
