Nearly every day, a San Mateo County resident walks through one of Samaritan House’s doors with the hope that they can prevent an imminent housing crisis for their family or themselves. Sometimes it’s too late and they are homeless -- and feeling hopeless.
It only takes a single incident of a job loss or a medical emergency to start a cascade of unfortunate circumstances which result in homelessness. So we provide intensive case management to assess not just the family’s crisis need, but all of their needs, such as: food, healthcare, utility or rental assistance, clothing for children and even someone to simply listen.
Samaritan House brings a new level of hope, dignity, and empowerment to people living in poverty by fulfilling their immediate needs and guiding them towards self-reliance.
70% of our resources come from private funding including individuals like you. This support is critical to help individuals and families avoid the suffering caused by homelessness, hunger and lack of access to basic necessities.
YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. Thank you for your contributions to help avert a crisis for individuals & families in need in San Mateo County.
