Review for The Samaritan Inn, McKinney, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What I love about the Samaritan Inn is they truly help provide residents with programs and tools to learn how to be successful. They invest in each and every person in the family. I've been a volunteer for about two years in the Book Hounds children's reading program with my certified therapy dog. It's amazing how a child will come out of his/her shell when reading to a dog instead of another person. There is no judging by a dog who gives love unconditionally. This helps a child relax, open up and really try to improve reading skills so they can read more to the dog the next week. My dog and I have had the privilege of working with some children over a long period of time during their stay at the Inn. It's truly amazing to watch a child who is struggling with his/her reading skills when he/she first comes into the program blossom into a child that loves to read while gaining confidence at the same time. Kudos to the Samaritan Inn for providing this program to the children at the Inn. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it.
