S.A.M. Foundation

We are glad you are here!


The S.A.M. Foundation is a local faith-based non-for-profit organization serving the local communities around Arlington Heights, Illinois.

SAM stands for Shadows of the Almighty Mission and it holds a two-fold meaning. It not only reminds us that we can rest safely under the protection of God’s shadow (Ps.91:1), but we strive to be shadows (imitators) of Jesus in how we serve.

VISION - The SAM Foundation exists to become a faithful example of Jesus’ hands and feet by serving those who are in need around us so that His purpose for them (to be truly delighted in His grace and blessings) can be fulfilled.

MISSION – We are called to prayerfully walk alongside those who are in need in our communities and help meet their physical needs, but more importantly, their spiritual needs (to help them see their need/desire for God’s love). We do this by forming Christ-like relationships, with staff, volunteers, and those from the community, and prayer fueled leadership and goals for the foundation.


Tangible Needs

  • Friday Indoor Dinner/Worship

The Friday Indoor Dinner/Worship meeting is open to everyone.

Every Friday we host a Friday Indoor Dinner/Worship at 4:30 pm. We usually have 30 minutes of fellowship time before dinner is served. After having dinner together, we have worship time for about 30 minutes.

Curbside is offered from 4:00-4:30pm

Indoor Gathering is offered from 4:30-5:30pm

  • Additional care

There are many physical needs that people have and we would love to help. After meeting one of our staff members, we can see how we can help!

Spiritual Support

The SAM Foundation believes that Jesus Christ and the Gospel is at the core of everything we do. Because of that, we desire to not only meet physical needs, but desire to offer spiritual support. Spiritual support can be a 1:1 Bible study, weekly prayer meetings, and harboring the community of a family.


For Volunteers

Come visit us! Our doors are open if you would like to see what we do. Feel free to come by Friday evenings for our gathering.
