use samaritan to...

rally customers to support a neighbor in your community through purchase-roundup or percentage-donation compaigns. (We'll send whatever materials you need.)

use samaritan to...

serve new customers through their Samaritan smart wallet. (you'll get checks from us monthly for 100% of purchases with ZERO fees or extra reporting.)

use samaritan to...

enable customers to donate general funds that can be redeemed by any guest in need(the suspended coffee model.)

use samaritan to...

receive awareness and patronage from organizations and supporters of the people you're serving (10 organizations and 14,000 volunteers involved in Seattle.)

the everyday resources you provide can help people find their way home.

Your business cares about and may be serving residents who pass through your city without a home. Local nonprofits are using Samaritan to provide the capital needed for these individuals to leave the street.

we'd love for you to help raise awareness for these neighbors, or allow them to spend at your business.

We understand margins for local businesses are narrow and charge zero commissions or fees for purchases that happen through Samaritan.

in this time of social and physical isolation, your partnership goes a long way...

to help people take steps towards life-changing goals.

help how you're able. the rest will take care of itself.

Because when the rest of us do the same for a neighbor, their problem of homelessness goes away.

I am convinced Samaritan is a great tool for teaching my kids (who ask often about homelessness) generosity and empathy.
Laura Now-Housed Beacon Holder
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.'
Michael M Now-Housed Beacon Holder
I can't forget how fragile my situation was. Support from city samaritans is how I kept myself pointed in the right direction.
