Samaritan Inns was founded in 1985 to help homeless and addicted people transform their lives. Each year, hundreds of men, women, and families enter a 28-day certified program based on nationally recognized best practices. Many move on to a five-month transitional living program, where they practice drug and alcohol-free lives, and learn to manage finances and hold a job. The final step, a two-year program where clients live in cooperative apartments, reinforces recovery. One Inn is reserved for women and children, allowing addicted mothers to continue to live with their kids while in treatment, significantly reducing the risk of relapse. One year after graduation, over 90% live in their own homes, sober and employed. The staff understands that new futures are within reach; half were formerly homeless and addicted themselves. Quite simply, your support rebuilds lives.
