Review for The Samaritan Inn, McKinney, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a graduate of this program, I assure you there is not another program in the United States today that can keep the promises that The Samaritan Inn makes and delivers. At one point in my life, I was living under a bridge in a cardboard box addicted to alcohol and cocaine. Today I am a manager at the business where I work, a deacon in my church, my home and car are paid for, and I have the respect of my family and my community for what I have been able to accomplish -all under the watchful eye of the Samaritan Inn and its staff . Most shelters can give you three to seven days, a few hot meals, and possibly a blanket or coat - and then you are on the streets again to fend for yourself. The Samaritan Inn not only gave me the time I needed to recover, but they kept their promise of being "a homeless program, for those who are willing, to regain their independence and their dignity". Without their help and guidance, I can't imagine where I would be today. I had been in numerous programs across this country searching for the help to stand tall once again. Most were just "band aids". The Samaritan Inn is the cure. I will forever be indebted to the case workers, staff, and board of directors for giving me my life back. Love you each and every one !!!.
