Programs offered to families staying at the Samaritan Center include emotional support, parental training, medical referral, mental health counseling, life skills workshops, finance management, domestic skills training and ultimately- hope for the future of both the adults and children who make Samaritan Center their temporary “home”.
Participation in the Center’s savings program is mandatory for families staying at the Center. In this program, 75% of all resident income within each family system is applied directly to a savings account in preparation for a housing solution upon that family’s graduation from the Samaritan Center.
Twenty-four hour staff supervision is required to successfully provide and ensure the structure, discipline, guidance and safety required by the diverse family systems represented in our residence. Volunteers help fill in the gaps to support a smooth and consistent program operation. Tasks completed by volunteers include: office assistance, meal preparations, maintenance, childcare, educational tutoring, fundraising, and special events.
