Here’s what the community is saying about Samaritan Center’s unique and successful program:
“The Samaritan Center program is both successful and unique, in that they work not only with troubled boys, but with their families. As a result, the cycle of dysfunction is broken and positive, life-changing results are realized for the betterment of the boy, his family, the community, and generations to follow. The program is an asset to our community.”
Sheriff William D. Snyder, Martin County Sheriff’s Department
“The Samaritan Center and Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County have enjoyed a long term partnership. Working together we have been able to meet the needs of our community's children by sharing resources, programs, and facilities. We look forward to continuing and strengthening what has been created to ensure long term community impact.”
Joanne Towner, Chief Executive Officer, Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County
“Helping People Succeed has had a relationship with Samaritan Center for many years – one in which we have seen our troubled boys go in with behavior and emotional problems and come out as confident, competent youths with a future! Thanks to the holistic approach that SC staff utilizes - spiritual, behavioral, social, physical, academic – these boys have gained skills and family connections that they would likely never have experienced. At Samaritan Center, every boy matters!”
Virginia O. Jones, LCSW, Clinical Director, Children's Community Mental Health, Helping People Succeed, Inc.
