About Samaritan Inn & Its History
The Samaritan Inn was established in 1984 after community leaders joined together to address the issue of homelessness in Collin County. Thirty years later, The Samaritan Inn is still the largest homeless program in a county of over 854,000 residents.
All services and support are provided free of charge through funding made from donations by churches, service groups and organizations, corporations and individuals. The Samaritan Inn is also a member of the United Way of Collin County.
Homeless families and individuals are the focus at The Samaritan Inn. In 2013, the Inn served 766 residents; 249 of them were children.
We are a comprehensive homeless program that helps willing people regain their dignity and independence.
To help people regain their independence.
Over 72% of the residents graduated from our program; which means they had an income and housing when they left The Samaritan Inn last year.
The organizational leadership at The Samaritan Inn consists of a volunteer Board of Directors, several committees that focus on specific areas of operation and a staff of thirty-five full and part-time employees. A large pool of volunteers also provides critical support.
