I have worked with The Samaritan Center to feed and house the chronically homeless for over six years. Most of the homeless population do not have the ability to pay a security deposit and first month's rent because they have limited income. We assist with this as part of our wrap around case management. The client signs a contract that includes a commitment with an Action Plan to move into housing and to continue to become self-sustaining, independent and a productive member of society. Last year, we were able to assist 89 individuals into housing and case management.
