AboutUs

For the greater good of Greater Kansas City.

Our Beginnings

Founded on the front lines of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, Good Samaritan Project continues to be a powerful force and friend to KC communities.

With an army of volunteers across the metro, we offer an essential array of prevention and education services, and help ensure that those with HIV/AIDS have access to long-term, compassionate care and management options.

Mission

A regional healthcare leader and influencer, Good Samaritan Project provides inclusive, holistic, and integrated health and wellness services to individuals affected by HIV & other STIs, LGBTQ communities, and those seeking a welcoming and affirming health & community center.

Vision

Every person in the Kansas City Metropolitan area has unfettered access to quality, timely, affordable, and culturally responsive healthcare — whatever their health status, background, orientation, age or identity.

Principles

GSP places clients at the center of their care.
Accountability
