Great opportunity for those willing to make positive changes in their life in order to get back on their feet. Focusing on keeping families together is a strength not many other programs seek to do.

Review for The Samaritan Inn, McKinney, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been with The Samaritan Inn for over two years, but have known about them for many more. While in college and once out I worked for an emergency shelter for abused and neglected youth in addition to homeless youth and runaways. These were kids without families. My favorite thing about The Samaritan Inn is how hard the staff works to keep the families together. Parents attend parenting classes, counseling is available for parents, kids and the entire family, the school liaison helps parents and kids navigate the changing of schools if needed and provides assistance as needed when the private world of personal homelessness collides with the public world of school. All the children's activities not only provide enrichment for the kids but also the occassional respite for the parents, a luxury not easy to come by in community living. And caseworkers work with any family agency involved to ensure the families gets what they need. Now this is just a small part of everything The Samaritan Inn does, but for me it's good to see families together instead of torn apart. It makes me proud to say I'm part of this organization.
