OUR MISSION IS RESTORING LIVES

The word “homeless” easily creates a chasm of separation between “us” and “them”, dozens of stereotypes support this barrier. Yet, just like every other person, each of the people who come through our door has a face, a name, a unique story, and the issues that they struggle with.

The Samaritan Center’s mission is to assist each individual exactly where they are, in becoming self-supportive and independent again, bridging the gap between street and home through services, support, health and home.

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.

Betty Eskey • Executive Director

LOVE

The most important thing we can do for our homeless is show them care and support.  By extending love and care we bridge the gap between their desperation and “feeling” whole again.

FEED

Food is an essential part of life.  Nourishment gives us the energy and nutrients to develop, be healthy and active, work, think and learn.

EDUCATE

Everything depends on knowledge. Knowledge and understanding empowers us to take control of our lives and create a positive, independent future.

HOUSE

Housing provides the security that each of us depends on to feel safe. When we are safe and our basic needs are met, there is hope for possibilities we hadn’t imagined.

Our goal is to assist individuals in becoming self-supporting, independent and self-sufficient again. The Center supports clients in moving forward through accountability, and individual case management, by setting realistic, progressive goals that our clients are responsible to meet.

The Samaritan Center has seen a sharp rise in the number of homeless and “near homeless” people seeking assistance.  Preventative services and assistance are crucial in keeping individuals and families from becoming homeless.
