Welcome to Samaritan Place! Samaritan Place, now in its 17th year of providing shelter and support for seniors in crisis, is one of 8 or fewer such programs in the United States where a complete continuum of care from emergency to long-term housing, as well as independent housing, is offered. Samaritan Place is, in fact, the nation’s only program offering a complete continuum of care for this population.
Seniors come to the program through traditional homeless shelters, hospitals, Adult Protective Services and other community resources. Basic eligibility criteria are: age 60 and older; not a threat to self or others; ambulatory; and able to manage daily activities with minimal assistance.
