Making things happen !


Open table is gaining momentum across the state and especially in the Covington Region. Our numbers have doubled! In February of this year we only had one young person on a Table in our state, now we have seven and in a few months that number will jump to FOURTEEN! 
We are in need of getting in touch with churches and the community in Tangipahoe, Washington and Livingston Parishes.  If anyone has a connection please contact us at 985-888-6100.
 Not only can Open Tables transform a life but they financially benefit communities.  According to national statistics from iFoster, every transitioning youth that does not fall through the cracks, there is a $1 million savings in societal costs to the community.  
James Samaritan Community Connection
Community Connection is a free online platform that connects the needs of foster children and families to the community to fill these needs.  James Samaritan Community Connection creates a real-time network that empowers the community to be a James Samaritan to those in need of a hand up.  This will be up and running in January of 2020.
James Samaritan's Social Enterprises Coming Soon
James + Arrow is our home collection that will share comfort with and support kids in foster care. Our first product is a locally designed, highly stylized & customized "bed in a bag" which we'll display and take pre-orders soon.

AIM  will serve as an entrepreneur and workskills program for our youth in transition. Our silkscreen shop will deliver all your t-shirt needs, as well as provide our own in-house designs. We will be open for business January 2020.
