STRIVE, a component of Samaritan Ministry's Next Step Program, is especially tailored to meet the needs of women and men with multiple barriers to employment, including folks who are unemployed long-term, formerly incarcerated, disconnected youth, recovering addicts, public assistance recipients, veterans, homeless, and/or those who are working on the edge of poverty.

The Role Model: Rev. Vincent Harris

Reverend Vincent Harris has spent the past four years volunteering as a Front Office Coordinator (FOC) at our Anacostia / SE DC office. After more than twenty years of service, Vince retired from the Rectory of St. George’s Episcopal Church, and began searching for new opportunities. He found them at Samaritan Ministry.

Learning Together: Faye Busingye

In mid 2017, Faye Busingye found herself at Samaritan Ministry's Silver Spring office, located at Church of Our Saviour, with a few goals in mind: learning how to improve her computer skills and finding better housing for herself. A full-time Certified Nursing Assistant, Faye only has the chance to visit the Silver Spring office every two weeks. Unfortunately, Samaritan Ministry lacked a curriculum to help teach computer skills at our various offices.
