Your gift will help support people who are homeless, and others in need, to make positive changes in their lives.

The Next Step Program is a self-help approach to assist people who are serious about making changes in their lives. Caseworkers help program participants set and prioritize goals and provide information and referral services as needed in areas such as employment, housing, health, etc. They act as coaches to support and encourage participants as they take steps towards their goals.

Samaritan Ministry respects both donors' privacy and the trust donors put in Samaritan Ministry to do what we say we will do with the resources given to us. You may read both our privacy policy and Donor Bill of Rights.
