Welcome to Samaritan Center in Stuart, Florida, where troubled boys become young men of character, families come to heal and lives are changed for good.

Since 1968, Samaritan Center’s proven Christian academic and residential program has helped boys who are making poor life choices get back on track.

We advance their scholastic progress through a diverse, personalized education curriculum. We teach them that their actions have consequences, and they must earn what they receive.

Through love and example, we inspire them to believe in themselves . . . and in God. Our supportive program extends to each boy’s family, with counseling and guidance to improve parenting and restore a healthy family dynamic.
