The purpose of the Good Samaritan Agency is to help individuals who have special needs concerning pregnancy and parenting gain the services and support they need to improve the quality of their lives.

The Good Samaritan Agency in Bangor, Maine was founded in 1902 by women from thirty area churches brought together by local businessman, Robert Jordan.  Good Samaritan Agency was the first independent adoption agency in the State of Maine and has been helping to meet the needs of single, pregnant women for more than a hundred years.

The Good Samaritan Agency in Bangor, Maine understands that adoption is a lifelong process and for many people whose life has been affected by adoption, this means you have many unanswered questions.  Our agency assists people who were adopted through our agency with learning more about their adoption and/or assisting in the search process


Services and information

  • Adoption

Requirements to become a foster parent

Maine's Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Child and Family Services, is in charge of recruiting and training prospective foster parents. They also place children in supportive homes. As such, you can always turn to your DHSS for help.

You can find educational resources, handbooks, and references on their website. All resource parents must be licensed by the OCFS.

The Maine OCFS has partnered with many child welfare agencies that provide support. A licensed child-placing agency can train new parents and ensure they meet licensure requirements.

Resource parents can also learn about reimbursement for care-related expenses. Examples include safety gates, clothing, school supplies, etc.

Plus, foster families can access information, referrals, peer support groups, mentoring, and respite care.

Both my children were in Good Sam's childcare program and it was a great experience. The staff are so dedicated and kind. I was impressed by the activities and how much kindergarten prep they did. My kids were more than ready to begin school thanks to Good Sam!

Because of the Good Samaritan Agency, I met my biological brother many years ago. We have kept in touch for over 25 years now. I am so glad we both reached out to find each other, although it has caused family feuds with some. I feel I got the better part of the deal.
