“A Healing Haven for People Who Are Homeless”
The first and foremost goal of Samaritan House is to make a difference in as many people's lives as possible by providing a short term recuperation facility for those who are homeless in a local hospital and have no where to go to properly recuperate once they are discharged.
Since we opened our doors in 2005, we have served more than 1100 guests recuperating from a wide range of injuries and ailments. All of what we have done and will continue to do has been done with a full-time staff of only four as well as a large volunteer and donor base who believe in what we do for those in their time of need. 80% of those that come to us, DO NOT return to the streets, the local shelters or the hospital, they move onto better things such as other programs, their own residence or with friends or family.
From all of us at Samaritan House
We wish everyone a happy
And safe Thanksgiving
