Review for Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been moved to support this organization in many ways. Its "Next Step" program is innovative, relies on the initiative of participants in the program and respects the participants' dignity. This organization does so much more than provide food and clothes. It provides links for volunteers to experience the devastating effects of homelessness on people. It allows volunteers to provide lasting help and hear first-hand the impact homelessness can have on real people. It is an effective program that continues to link homeless people needing many things with caring, respectful, dedicated volunteers and staff. Samaritan Ministry's Next Step program is a refreshing approach to helping others.

What would you tell others about this organization?

This organization is not just giving out goods and services. It does so with respect, dignity and places the decision with program participants. It works with folks to achieve participants' goals, as long as the participants keeping coming.
