Rockport-Fulton Good Samaritans, Inc. provides a variety of services to residents of Aransas County at our Service Center at 507 S. Ann St. To receive services, clients should come to the center with a photo identification card and social security cards for each member of the family, sign in with the receptionist at the front desk, and then meet with one of our interviewers. The interviewer then determines the type and amount of assistance to be provided, if any. Most assistance is in the form of vouchers. We do not provide any direct payments to clients. Assistance is intended to address emergency needs.
We also work in conjunction with Castaways, The Society of St. Vincent DePaul, Aransas Couny Assistance, WIC, ACCESS, Texas Workforce, Corpus Christi shelters, veterans’ groups, Lions Club, and Community Action. By combining resources with these other organizations and agencies, we are better able to address the needs of our clients.
||We maintain a stocked food pantry at our service center and distribute food in volumes determined by household size. Our goal is to provide for at least three days of meals.
||We work primarily with Castaways Thrift Shop for clothing.
||We can provide assistance with utility bills (however, we do not pay deposits, and we do not assist with telephone service). We also provide referrals to Community Action. Community Action employees visit our service center two times a month and meet with our clients who have made appointments. If you are seeking such assistance, you should bring your current utility bill(s) with you to our office.
||If you are seeking help with your rent payments, you should bring details of your rent payments with you, including landlord’s name, address, phone number, and total rent owed.
||If you are seeking assistance for medications, bring your prescriptions with you. If possible, bring a statement of prices from your pharmacy. We do not assist with prescriptions for opiates or related pain medications.
||If you are in need of temporary shelter, we may be able to provide some short term assistance and referrals to Corpus Christi services.
||If you are seeking help with medical appointments, bring in all pertinent information, including time and date of appointment, name of doctor, and address and phone number of doctor.
We may be able to assist with other household and family needs, including dental services, eyeglasses, and transportation.
