Samaritan House Women’s Shelter
Samaritan House provides temporary shelter and rehabilitative services to homeless women suffering from substance abuse, mental illness, domestic violence, HIV/AIDS and those just out of prison on parole.
19-bed shelter provides comprehensive services as well as individualized treatment for women suffering from substance abuse, mental illness, domestic violence and HIV/AIDS.
Each resident receives ongoing case management while in the shelter to ensure that they receive the best mix of treatment options. Follow-up services and advocacy are also provided after discharge.
During their stay, women share a room with one or two other residents and receive free morning and evening meals. The objective is to move women back to the community and into more permanent living quarters as quickly as possible.
While in the shelter, the women are closely supervised to ensure that they keep appointments with medical doctors and therapists, attend mandated recovery programs, keep court appointments, visit children and families and look for jobs.
Samaritan House also assists an average of 6-10 emergency clients each evening. Emergency clients are provided with overnight shelter, clothing, toiletries, breakfast, snacks and referrals.
