In this unprecedented time, two things
have never been more important…
1 — helping vulnerable populations find safe housing
2 — using our limited medical capacity efficiently
1 of every 4 men, women and children who visit your ED or hospital on a recurrent basis will sleep tonight not knowing if they'll sleep in the same place tomorrow.
Community members who lack stable housing are constantly exposed to outbreaks, addictive substances, and abuse (not to mention a lack of sleep, food, transportation, or emotional wellbeing). The result of these traumas can reduce life expectancy by over 20 years.
It also leads to 8X utilization of your ED and hospital, reducing throughput, driving incredible cost (whether they’re uninsured or on Medicaid), and affecting morale of your physicians and staff.
Aware of the critical responsibility to address SDOH, your team is asking, 'How do we help a higher % of patients access community resources to address their social needs?'
Samaritan exists to reinforce your hospital’s mission and speak to this question. Together, we can enable housing-insecure patients to overcome the traumas that lead to emergency care.

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.

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

Thanks to samaritans for checking up on and feeding me… Don’t know how I would have ate or kept warm many nights without you.

Sometimes, you can feel really invisible and it can kind of feel al lot of times like there's no help out there. It was just nice to have people be like "Yea, we really want to help."
