Did you know we also provide…

Employment Services
Looking for a new job or wanting to find a better one? Does your resume need an upgrade? Need help with online applications? Or not quite sure where to start? Our employer specialist will help you! Ask your case worker for more information.
Adult Basic Education
Do you want to take a training that requires you to pass the CASAS test? Or have you dreamed of getting your GED but are nervous about taking that first step? We can help you with all of this! Reach out to your caseworker for more information
Financial Support
If you are an *active participant, you might be eligible for some financial support towards your goals. Examples of this type of support might include: a gift card to purchase gas for a new job until you get your first paycheck; clothing to wear to an interview, or a table to eat breakfast in your new apartment that you've finally gotten! All requests for financial support must go through your caseworker, then go to the program director for approval. *An active participant is someone who is taking or has taken next steps to meet goals they are currently working on, and who meets once a month either virtually or in person w their caseworker.

Question of the Month:

Who is my NW caseworker?

Right now, the NW office does not have a Lead Caseworker. We do have an intern, Samantha, who is with us on Tuesdays and Thursdays (except from December 16 through January 16 when she is on vacation!) We are interviewing candidates for the Lead Caseworker position and hope to have someone in the role soon! So if you need assistance, please either reach out to Samantha, or to Jennifer, Samaritan’s Program Director.
