From its beginnings in a six-room rented house in rural North Dakota to becoming the nation’s largest not-for-profit provider of senior care and services, The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society has always been guided by its mission of sharing God’s love in word and deed.

Founded by the Rev. August “Dad” Hoeger, the Good Samaritan Society was incorporated on Sept. 29, 1922. The Society’s first center, a small home in Arthur, N.D., opened in 1923. Two years later, the newly formed Good Samaritan Society had purchased property on the north side of Arthur and constructed three buildings: one for men, one for women and one for disabled children.

Throughout its history, Dad Hoeger’s belief that the Society hold true to its Christian mission has served as the organization’s foundation. And the Good Samaritan Society’s goal for serving residents and clients is expressed in its motto, “In Christ’s Love, Everyone Is Someone.”

Today, the organization — headquartered in Sioux Falls, S.D. — serves more than 27,000 people in 240 locations nationwide. Its services have broadened from traditional skilled nursing care to include senior living apartments, home health, assisted living, hospice care, inpatient and outpatient therapy and specialized units for people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
