CONNECT. EMPOWER. TRANSFORM.
At Samaritas we connect people with families and communities, empower them to live their fullest life possible, and create a ripple effect of transformation.
How will you start your ripple? Samaritas is looking for runners to join the FIRST EVER Team Ripple Effects in the Grand Rapids Marathon and we want to team up with you. All runners who join Team Ripple Effects will receive a running shirt to wear the day of the event!
Your donation will help the over 16,000 children and families we serve across the state of Michigan through over 70 programs!
We walk with people in need, offering hope and compassion while upholding their dignity, advocating for equality and justice, and seeking creative solutions.
We deliver the home, family and community most connected to the individual relational, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of those we serve, wherever they might fall on the continuum of care.
Through permanence, we deliver a sense of love, belonging, health and well-being that empowers those we serve with a feeling of personal control, confidence and worthiness to live their fullest life. When those we serve reach their full potential they, in turn, promote the dignity of others, creating a ripple effect out into the community that achieves the greatest transformation for all.
