The Next Step Giving Society

The Next Step Giving Society is a special group committed to building a stronger foundation, expanding and providing a stable future for Samaritan Ministry’s Next Step Program. As a member of the Next Step Giving Society, you will help fund this growing program and provide critical support for the homeless and disadvantaged in the Washington, DC area as they face their challenges and achieve their goals.

There are three levels of giving in the Next Step Giving Society.

Next Step Star: $1,000 a year for five years
This supports five program participants, one each year, by helping to provide a continuum of care to help low-income individuals and families move toward self-sufficiency through employment, social services for those experiencing homelessness and those at risk of becoming homeless, and support for those living with HIV/AIDS.

Next Step Leader: $5,000 a year for five years
Supports program services for five participants a year, or 25 participants over five years.

Next Step Champion: $10,000 a year (or more) for five years
Supports program services for 10 participants a year, or 50 participants over the five years of your pledge.

We invite corporations and businesses to join us as partners in addressing homelessness and poverty in our community. Samaritan Ministry works with more than 1,000 job seekers each year who are motivated and ready to work.

Thank you to our Next Step donors!
