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. Those with special needs are referred to additional programs and resources available within the community to help during their crisis. Action plans are put in place for each resident and are reviewed after the first 3 days and thereafter on a weekly basis. The length of stay varies as each person's situation differs; however, the average length of stay for this program is 45-90 days.
Residents have a safe, clean place to stay that includes three meals a day, fresh clothing, and shower and laundry facilities. There are separate dormitory style living areas for men and women, and private living areas for parents with small children. Security and supervision is provided by the Inn staff.
Case Workers maintain professional relationships with other support agencies within the community. Case Workers are on staff to help develop and implement individual action plans that allow participants to establish a source of income and secure housing. They assist residents in finding appropriate financial or legal counseling, provide mental and medical health referrals, and encourage participation in support groups, parenting classes, workshops, and rehabilitation programs.
New intakes may come in to meet with a case worker daily (available 7 days a week), any time between 11am and 2pm.
