James Samaritan has been dedicated to the support and welfare of the child foster system for the past 8 years.  Inspired by James 1:27, this non-profit organization was created by St Tammany resident Kim Bigler.  Working with DCFS, churches, volunteers and foster families, James Samaritan provides resources and imporves living conditions for foster children.

I was a business manager in New York making money, but then I had a moment when I reconnected with my faith.  I can’t think of a more vulnerable person than a child without a family.”
