Samaritan Inn: Serving Collin County's Homeless

samaritan inn

We offer a comprehensive homeless program that helps willing people gain dignity and independence.

The Samaritan Inn is more than just a place to spend the night. It is a holistic program that teaches self-sufficiency and life skills. To assist the needs of individuals and families before, during, and after a homeless situation, The Samaritan Inn provides interactive, in-house programs for its residents and graduates. Those with special needs are referred to additional programs and resources available within the community to help during their crisis.

Story of the Week
samaritan inn Richard is 62 years old and originally from Galveston. He is a perfect example of how sometimes The Samaritan Inn simply has to fill an emergency gap. Due to an illness in his family, Richard lost his job. He used his savings to pay his rent, but that was quickly depleted.
