The Impact Centre in Mutholath Nagar at Cherpunkal, Kottayam District, Kerala State furnishes temporary residence to persons coming from distant areas, those who use the Mutholath Auditorium, and Good Samaritan Resource and Training Centre. It is also suitable for residential camps and conferences, providing air-conditioned rooms, conference halls, and a chapel. The centre is equipped with food and transportation services. This revenue will finance the Community-Based Rehabilitation programs of Good Samaritan Centre and Agape Bhavan, both of which are in Mutholath Nagar.

Michael Vettikkatt, Diocesan Director Fr. Alex Akkapparambil, KSSS director Fr. Sunil Perumanoor and under the supervision of Fr. James Vadakkekandamkariyil.
