Each year Pastoral Counseling Services proudly hosts the Annual Good Samaritan Awards Celebration. This unique celebration brings together six distinct segments of the community and honors an individual in each category who has pursued extraordinary measures to strengthen communities and improve life in New Hampshire.

Proceeds from the Good Samaritan Awards Banquet will:

  • Assist those individuals and families who do not have the financial means necessary to secure the counseling services they need and
  • Support programs and services that meet the ever changing needs of our community.

The wellness of our friends and neighbors is the core of what keeps our community positive and productive.
