Their Story

I have diabetes and a heart condition which has led to homelessness. I...

was previously a nurse but had to quit because of my health. I feel joy through hearing the word of God and praying! My favorite hobby is to cook and braid hair, and my favorite dish to make is chicken stew with white rice and beans. When I'm away from the kitchen, I love spending time with my two kids who live in Las Vegas.

Send messages of encouragement, contribute to emergent needs (such as food, clothing, and medication), and become part of someone’s journey home

These are our neighbors

During this unprecented time, it's never been more important to help them find a safe, stable, supportive place to sleep at night.

We find that when we wrap a social home around someone, they gain the capacity to often find the physical home soon after.

You are invited to join one or many who seek to find a home this year.

The number one question I'm asked, is " Jeff, how do I respond when asked for help on the street? Samaritan is an answer to that question.

This is the first time in seven years people have seen me for who I am, not what I look like or come from.

Thanks to samaritans for checking up on and feeding me… Don’t know how I would have ate or kept warm many nights without you.

Sometimes, you can feel really invisible and it can kind of feel al lot of times like there's no help out there. It was just nice to have people be like "Yea, we really want to help."
