The Next Step Program

Sometimes we just don’t have what we need to solve life’s problems. We may end up discouraged, not knowing what to do next.  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. 

Samaritan Ministry works with everyday people who want to make changes in their lives.  There are no religious requirements to participate.  We work with you for as long as you want to participate in the program, and we will follow-up with you as you accomplish Next Steps towards your goals.
