Your story matters

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 12,210 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

The beacon is really a healthy way of telling your story. [A donation] truly always came when I needed it.

Thanks so much for all you do. It truly does make an impact in my life as well as others.

This is an amazing model because it provides two critical components for an individual: real capital and social capital. Both are truly needed.

This is another lifeline. It’s awesome. Makes me feel almost normal again. Like part of the human race almost.
