Jeff Lilley former CEO of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission
The number one question I’m asked is, ‘Jeff, how do I respond when asked for help on the street?’ Samaritan is an answer to that question.
Michael M Now-Housed Beacon Holder
I can't forget how fragile my situation was. Support from city samaritans is how I kept myself pointed in the right direction.
Compass Housing Alliance Program Coordinator, Compass Housing Alliance
Each dollar straight to our clients reminds them that they are cared for and deeply appreciated. It goes a long way.
Lamar J Beacon Holder
Even when I don’t have faith in myself, or feel I can’t make it, this just gives me a extra… oomph.
