Who Are We?

Shawano Area Matthew 25, Inc. (SAM25) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on helping those in our community who are struggling with poverty and homelessness.

How We Began
The concept and planning for our group began in the winter of 2013 with a small group of individuals who were aware of and concerned about the growing poverty and homelessness in our community. The group was incorporated and obtained 501(c)3 status in 2014, opened SAM's House Emergency Shelter in 2015, opened the SAM25 Resource Center in 2017, the SAM25 Thrift Store in 2021, and the SAM25 Community Health Clinic in 2022. SAM25 appreciates the volunteers and the support from our caring and generous community. THANK YOU!
