Their Story

I lost my job in 2017 and got pretty depressed. Had a hard time getting...

employment after that. My son was getting in trouble at school. I had some health issues and couldn’t hold a job. Then I had to stay home during COVID. We stayed off and on with family and it wasn’t a healthy place for us. We then ended up staying in our car for about 3 weeks before coming to shelter. We are now working on becoming stable and getting housing. My goals for for this year is to own a home and get employed! For fun, we enjoy playing games. (We love UNO)

These are our neighbors

During this unprecented time, it's never been more important to help them find a safe, stable, supportive place to sleep at night.

We find that when we wrap a social home around someone, they gain the capacity to often find the physical home soon after.

You are invited to join one or many who seek to find a home this year.

The number one question I'm asked, is " Jeff, how do I respond when asked for help on the street? Samaritan is an answer to that question.

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

I've been on the streets for 13 years. I've seen and heard everything. This probably has helped me more than anything else.

Sometimes, you can feel really invisible and it can kind of feel al 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."
