Who We Are
The Samaritan Place of Restoration is a not for profit organization established to serve disenfranchised individuals and families with chronic socio-economic challenges. Our vision is to restore stability in the lives of the individuals and families we serve. Grounded in Matthew 25:35-36, Samaritan Place of Restoration is a resource for basic human needs, intensive case management and coordination of wraparound supports in the community. Samaritan Place of Restoration implements a service delivery strategy that is multi-generational in its approach to moving individuals and families toward achieving self-sufficiency.
Our Objectives Are To...
ADDRESS UNMET HUMAN NEEDS.
The organization concentrates its efforts on stabilizing and restoring disenfranchised households impacted by financial and catastrophic events. Intensive case management and basic needs assessments determine the level of service needed to support movement toward self-sufficiency.
EQUIP COMMUNITY MEMBERS WITH ESSENTIAL RESOURCES.
Through internal resources and/or a coordination of services with partnering provider organizations, the organization provides access to essential resources such as healthy foods, clothing, counseling, and temporary housing assistance.
FILL THE GAP OF FAMILY CIRCUMSTANCES.
Through intensive case management, we utilize a multi-generational approach to addressing the needs of individuals and families impacted by poverty, homelessness, and food insecurity. Research has shown that if the head of household cannot sufficiently maintain a level of financial security in the home, all members of the household are impacted in some way.
We value every human being regardless of their circumstance. On any given day 16,200 people are homeless in Pennsylvania. Securing shelter is the start of regaining stability for the future. Our coordination of services is designed to serve as a bridge moving individuals and families from dependency to self-sufficiency.
Our work is not done until poverty ceases to exist. One person at a time, we can and must uplift the unacceptable condition of our nation.
