Samaritan is a support platform
that empowers people without a home
to move forward

individuals gain the social and financial support needed to rebuild hope and reach housing goals

But it all starts with you.

Provide social and financial capital
to witness life-changing outcomes
in your community.

Engaging people in need…

When a person becomes a member of Samaritan, they work with a care provider to set top-level goals, plus related action steps and needs for those goals. From there, members can access funds from good samaritans looking to support
their journey.

Engaging people in need…

Members also earn $10-$20 bonuses by completing positive action steps towards their goals, such as successfully making it to a treatment, or building a resume. Money for this comes from an Action Fund we help you put together.

Engaging people in need…

Money is redeemed with the care provider to address critical needs, such as food, bills, prescriptions, move-in fees, transportation, and more.

Everyone needs
a team…

Each individual is backed by their team of volunteer and professional samaritans. Each team works to meet needs, match bonuses, and message encouragement or opportunities through the Samaritan app.

So they can
move forward.

Strengthened relationships with care providers, coupled with relational and financial investment from the community, have helped individuals reach life-changing outcomes, like a stable home.

These are our neighbors

During this unprecented time, it's never been more important to help them find a safe, stable, supportive place to sleep at night.

We find that when we wrap a social home around someone, they gain the capacity to often find the physical home soon after.

You are invited to join one or many who seek to find a home this year.

The number one question I’m asked is, ‘Jeff, how do I respond when asked for help on the street?’ Samaritan is an answer to that question.
