About Us

Samaritan Center is a 5-day a week residential, Christian program designed to address and modify inappropriate behaviors in young boys. 

Samaritan Center boys are here on a voluntary basis. They are not court appointed. There is a rigorous application and interview process to determine if the boy, his family and our staff can work the program together. It is critically important that the family commit to their son and the program. It’s the only way that success can be achieved.

Boys come to Samaritan Center as a result of inappropriate behavior that can also result in poor academic performance.  As a team, we work together to modify each boy's behavior, get him at or above his expected grade level, and build his character, self-esteem and sense of community.  

Our Christian-based program approaches these challenges from a positive perspective. We employ structure, consistency, love and encouragement. We use a basic merit and demerit system to encourage the boys to make good choices. There is no corporal punishment…..ever!

The Samaritan Center will once again participate in the annual "Great Give," which will be held from midnight to midnight on May 17th.  This 24-hour online giving event (led by United Way of Palm Beach County, Achieve, Nonprofits First and United Way of Martin County) is designed to raise as much money as possible for local non-profits in a single day. When you contribute to the Samaritan Center on May 17th through the Great Give web site, your donation will be multiplied by additional dollars from a bonus pool raised by United Way of Palm Beach County.  Visit our donation page here, or click here to learn more.
