More Service at Skyland

To be more accessible to new Next Step Participants, especially those taking the STRIVE job readiness training, we've expanded our Next Step Program services at the Skyland Workforce Center (SWC) and consolidated STRIVE trainings to this location by closing our office at the Perry School Center.

In a growing partnership with SWC, Samaritan Ministry now has a full-time Caseworker as well as the staff who provide the STRIVE training (our Program Trainer/Team Leader, Job Developer, Outreach Coordinator, and Intake Specialist) based out of this office in the Woodland neighborhood on the border between Wards 7 and 8 in SE Washington.

"At Skyland, we'll be more accessible to people East of the River who want to start taking their next steps, especially in employment, but for whom the trek to our other locations was a barrier," said Rev. David B. Wolf, Samaritan Ministry's Executive Director.
