Review for The Samaritan Inn, McKinney, TX, USA
I started with The Samaritan Inn many years ago when we were only a overnight shelter 7-7,we were much smaller then hosted about 50 people per night. I volunteered 40 hours a week then became a staff person after a year of volunteering. I left their in 1991 , The Inn is all about family and once you have that in your blood it is hard to stay away. I came back to work for the the Inn in 2005, and what a difference the shelter had changed so much, for the best.
I have seen many people come and go, we have seen them at that worst and even at their best at times. This place is unlike any other shelter I have ever seen or heard of. There is no reason for failure unless it is self applied. From the moment someone walks in they have a shoulder to lean on, they are not alone they have a whole team behind them.
They are given all the tools to succeed - shelter, food, clothes, daycare, classes, medical, guidance every step of the way.
They are many folks that work behind the scenes to make this happen, that the residence never really hear about; Our Donors, Volunteers,Grant Writers, Board Members just to mention a few.
I am very blessed to belong to such and caring organization. and I hope our residents feel the same way.
There is nothing more rewarding then when you hear from a past resident and they share with us a glimpse of their new life, and how proud they are of their accomplishments.
And to know they are grateful enough to take time from their busy schedule to say Thank You...it brings a tears to my eyes.
Please come by and see for yourself what we do for our residents, and know why I think the Samaritan Inn , is the best Shelter in the world!
