About Us

The Samaritan House (TSH) of Orangeburg County, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity registered in the state of South Carolina. TSH was organized in 2001 in response to the great need in the Orangeburg area, as was evident by the use of a now-defunct “shelter” that existed under deplorable conditions.  Under the leadership of Ginger Jernigan, a group of community leaders saw the need and began serving the homeless in 2002. Since its inception, the organization's purpose has been to provide temporary housing, daily meals, and stabilization services to homeless adult men, women, and their children.



We offer a range of services including but not limited to: Personal and Professional Development, Educational Assistance, Workforce Development, Mental Health Assistance, Substance Abuse Assistance, Counseling,  Housing Assistance Services, Health Care Services, Financial Literacy , Mentoring, Spiritual Enrichment

All contributions are welcomed and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
