Their Story

# About Me Just walked away from a domestic violence relationship. I am...

trying to do better for my life. I have hope for a brighter future, and am looking for a stable living situation. I want to get a degree in psychology in childhood and adolescent development, but I need to pay off student loans from 2009. I love teaching kids and would like to work with them as a profession, specifically ones with special needs.

Send messages of encouragement, contribute to emergent needs (such as food, clothing, and medication), and become part of someone’s journey home

These are our neighbors

During this unprecented time, it's never been more important to help them find a safe, stable, supportive place to sleep at night.

We find that when we wrap a social home around someone, they gain the capacity to often find the physical home soon after.

You are invited to join one or many who seek to find a home this year.

The number one question I'm asked, is " Jeff, how do I respond when asked for help on the street? Samaritan is an answer to that question.

This is the first time in seven years people have seen me for who I am, not what I look like or come from.

I've been on the streets for 13 years. I've seen and heard everything. This probably has helped me more than anything else.

Sometimes, you can feel really invisible and it can kind of feel al lot of times like there's no help out there. It was just nice to have people be like "Yea, we really want to help."
