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
