Our Results

At Samaritan Ministry we define success one next step at a time. Each participant sets their own goals, to overcome their unique obstacles. Some achieve success in the more traditional sense, moving on to self-sustaining lives. Others require additional support and may return to us to take additional next steps. All participants are determined to make their lives better. In the end, the successes are theirs, not ours. We guide, support, encourage, and coach, but they do the heavy lifting. All successes, both large and small, are celebrated. 

To stay up to date on our progress, sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter. All past In-Step issues are available here.
