Annual Appeal 2021-2022

For more than 40 years, the Samaritan Center has served as an anchor in the lives of thousands of guests who pass through our doors each year in search of companionship, a listening ear, a hot meal or the simple presence of others. For so many, Samaritan is a constant in an ever-changing world.  Our guests rely on us to be here physically and emotionally, to support them through crisis and challenge, to remind them there are those who share their hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Last year, with the help of more than 500 monthly volunteers, hope was a hot meal for more than 100,000 individuals and families in need. Through direct case management support and partnerships with community agencies, more than 190 guests were given hope through assistance with housing, benefits, employment, household goods, diapers, mental health care or legal services. Underlying all of that, is a family of support and a daily reminder for our guests that we are present beside them. At Samaritan, no one is alone.

Samaritan Center has been a comforting ballast to those in need in our community. As we continue to navigate the roller coaster of this pandemic, our services remain critical. With this in mind, we have set the goal of raising $290,000 through our Annual Appeal. This will allow Samaritan Center to continue to be a reliable anchor for our guests, meeting their most essential needs and offering a source of compassion and dignity during these uncertain times. By making an investment in the future of the Samaritan Center, your generosity can be the spark that ignites hope for those in need. 

Thank you for your compassion and generosity.
