In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Samaritan Inns wants to assure our community that we view the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff among our highest priorities.
We are trying to be both cautious and responsible, while remaining committed to serving our substance use treatment clients and recovering residents. Therefore, we are continuing to provide essential services and housing, as many of them have nowhere else to go and need the help we provide.
However, in accordance with CDC recommendations, we have temporarily ceased allowing personal visitors, or volunteer activities, including the dropping off of food and in-kind donations. Those with official business should still use the designated entrance to each facility.
Should you have questions that require an immediate answer, we ask that you call us at 202-328-2433 or email us at email@example.com. We appreciate your consideration in light of this very difficult situation in which we all find ourselves.
Last December, we held a ribbon cutting ceremony opening the doors to the Fairmont Inn, which would soon house a new Transitional Living Program.
We wrote last year that in the new program, individuals fighting addiction would be able to fortify their newfound physical, emotional, and psychological well-being and begin to learn a new way of life. The residents would be provided with counseling, crisis intervention, GED preparation, financial management, vocational readiness, employment services, and much more.
Less than a year later, we are proud to celebrate our first three graduates from the program! We celebrated these three men on October 30th. There were many laughs, and many tears as they, and the people dedicated to working with them shared stories, encouragement, and the utmost gratitude to God.
We look forward to more stories of hope!
