SSSGS, a 501 non profit organization serves not only Pacific Islander youth but all the youth and adults of gateway cities of Southern California (Cerritos, Long Beach, Artesia, Lakewood, Bellflower, Signal Hill, Lomita and Carson).
We deal with the tough problems facing Pacific Islander families, especially problems that diminish their chances for a rewarding future. We help offer solutions that empower them to develop the practical and emotional skills to lead healthy and productive lives. We supply food each month to help families make ends meet. We provide after-school programs and college scholarships to youth. We promote lifestyle changes to fight diabetes and obesity.
Nearly alone amoung our local social services agencies, SSS (Samoan *Strength*Sincerity) Good Samaritan reinforces the kinds of values that gives our Pacific Islander community its steadfast character. At the same time, we use these values to fortify the connection between our community and what is best in American socieity.
Our volunteers and board of directors focus their combined talents and resources to lead SSS Good Samaritan toward excellence.
