As your team starts to travel
your city again…
They’ll be reminded how vulnerable some of our unhoused neighbors truly are. Kindness yields unexpected health and self-improvement benefits. But what can be done here? What can your team do?
We’ve seen that when we surround a person with social and financial capital, it helps accelerate their path to a permanent, supportive home. A social home—followed by the physical home.
Use Samaritan to invite employees (or congregants, members, partners, clients, etc.) into this process, reinforcing the efforts of local nonprofits.
We’ll bring simple, tangible opportunities to strengthen someone’s fight to leave the street (plus reportable data). You bring the crew.
Let's talk about the
opportunities at hand…

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.
Raven R.Samaritan Member
I've been on the streets for 13 years. I've seen and heard everything. This probably has helped me more than anything else.
Laura L.now-housed Samaritan Member
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."
