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

This is for my transformation, not theirs. And then along the way, I can help.

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

In my 12 years working with unhoused individuals, I’ve never seen barriers reduced for community involvement like this. This is truly one of the most innovative engagement tools I’ve seen.

This makes me feel like there's somebody out here who actually wants to help.
