Hear the words
of our member alumni

you matter deeply

When you don’t have a home, it can be hard to find what you need to move forward. Maybe "No" is the most common word you hear in a given day. Perhaps you see people pretending you don’t exist, or that they’re too busy to lend a hand.

We are truly, truly sorry.

There are 15,210 samaritans in Seattle
who want to help share your burden

Everyone needs a team. If you could use one, ask a care provider you know about helping you sign up for Samaritan.

Share samaritan with your case manager or an organization…

Or give us their information
and we'll reach out for you

I can't forget how fragile my situation was. Support from city samaritans is how I kept myself pointed in the right direction.

Sometimes, you can feel really invisible and it can kind of feel a 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.'
