Courage, compassion, love. Those are some of the traits Good Samaritan Society employees are encouraged to live out every day.
And whether they’re caring for Society residents or serving as stewards in their community, the traits that make up The Good Samaritan Society Way are part of their calling as Christians.
Katie Weimer, a long-time certified nursing assistant at Good Samaritan Society – Fort Collins Village in Colorado, shared these traits when she asked her administrator, Fred Pitzl, for help. Her request stemmed from her deep love for friend Jazmin Rivera, who had died in an automobile accident and had left four children and husband, Chachi, behind. After her death, the family was not able to afford a headstone.
“I would see the kids in church every Sunday. It weighed heavy on my heart,” Katie says. “It was God speaking to me, and I wrote the letter to see what I could do for them.”
