Next Step

Sometimes we just don’t have what we need to solve life’s problems. That’s why Samaritan Ministry offers the Next Step Program, to assist you in setting your own goals and taking manageable steps toward reaching them. As a Next Step Participant, our caseworkers will work with you on issues such as housing, employment, and more. This program is ideal for anyone who needs to get back on their feet. Many of our participants came to us as returning citizens, homeless or recently housed, unemployed, facing addiction, or family issues. They are now on the path to a new life!


STRIVE is a part of Samaritan Ministry’s  Next Step  program created to help you overcome multiple barriers to employment including incarceration, addiction, or disconnection from family. If you’re receiving public assistance recipients, are a veteran, homeless or working on the edge of poverty, STRIVE can help you. Our STRIVE classes (now virtual- loaner devices available) will teach you everything you need to know about applying for jobs, the interview process, and on-the-job skills.

Pre-GED Classes

Our Pre-GED courses allow participants to continue their education with the goal of receiving a Certificate of High School Equivalency. There is a place for everyone in these courses, no matter where a person is on their educational journey, and classes are free to all.

Career Gear

Need a professional look? Samaritan Ministry is proud to offer career attire and other clothing to  Next Step participants (including STRIVE graduates) and in our larger community.
