in your community

Reach people in need

When a person becomes a Samaritan Member, they set top-level goals with a care provider, as well as related action steps and needs for those goals. From here, Members can access funds from a team of samaritans (folks like you!) looking to support their journey.

Enable steps forward

Members also earn $10-$20 bonuses as they take action steps towards goals, such as meeting with a housing specialist, getting a COVID-19 shot, or building a resume. Money for this comes from our Action Fund.

Meet immediate needs

Funds are redeemed alongside 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 a team of volunteer and professional samaritans. Each team commits monthly acts of kindness around the person directly, raising hope & capacity to find housing, employment, recovery, and more.

So they can
move forward

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

Become a Samaritan

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.

This is the first time in seven years people have seen me for who I am, not what I look like or come from.

A former client recently shared that what she needed most was people to believe in her. Truly, Samaritan met this need.
