Counseling

The Samaritan Center offers non-clinical counseling to our boys and their families and encourages regularly scheduled professional, clinical counseling.
 

The non-clinical counseling, support, morale boosting and encouragement occurs on an as-needed basis and can include a single session during a crisis, or weekly sessions if a boy or family needs more encouragement.

There are also mandatory parenting classes held a few times each month. During these classes, families learn how to be better parents and role models. They learn skills to better cope with the stress of parenting, and the importance of consistency. They also learn not to succumb to emotional responses and tactics, but to exhibit calm control of the situation.

Because communication is key to future success, each boy is tested to see if there is need for a speech therapist. If so, one is provided.

Spotlights

Carl's Cares

Samaritan Center was honored to be the first local non-profit to be featured in a new initiative launched by Carl’s Buick GMC:  Carl’s Cares.  As Carl’s spotlighted charity for July 2019, Samaritan Center received a donation for every car sold - a total of $2,200!  Carl’s also helped us educate the public about Samaritan Center by inviting us to share our story with their sales staff and displaying our brochures in their showroom. The generous people at Carl’s, have already been instrumental in helping Samaritan Center obtain a new van at a price we could afford.  They are truly a valued community partner.
