The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Melding good business with compassion, Samaritan Inns is dedicated to empowering homeless men and women with addictions to rebuild their lives through recovery here in our nation's capital.
By offering the necessary opportunity, structure, and encouragement, those that choose recovery are provided with a way to free themselves from the hopelessness of addiction and discover a new, more fulfilling way of life. With care, we have developed a comprehensive, three-phase continuum of housing, accountability, and support which includes a 28-day Intensive Recovery Program, a six-month Transitional Living Program, and a longer-term Affordable Housing Program. This allows our residents to remain drug and alcohol free, live independently, reconnect with their families and participate constructively in the life of our communmity.
