The Residences


Samaritan Center's beautiful and serene 11-acre campus on Cove Road in Stuart, Florida, is an ideal setting for living, learning and changing lives for the better.

Our boys live in one of three residences on campus:  the Porter Cottage, the Garden Cottage or the Meadow Cottage. But these cottages are more than a place for our boys to live:  They are a therapeutic program in and of themselves.  Our residences create a homelike environment with a caring and structured atmosphere that enables the boys to cultivate essential life skills and valuable character development assets.

Each boy is expected to do his own laundry and accomplish basic household chores. They not only learn life skills, but begin to accept responsibility and discover how they can be contributing and valued members of their families.

Each boy has his own bedroom. There is a comfortable living room and a large dining room for meals….three balanced and nutritional meals every day.  Each cottage has designated areas for play and quiet time. We encourage after-school play in the form of basketball, bike riding, skateboarding or other activities.

The cottages are run by experienced, well-trained Teaching Parents who safeguard the boys and instruct them in social skills, basic etiquette and decision making.  Our residential program is designed to instill a sense of responsibility in the boys, throughout all aspects of their lives. 

On weekends and holiday breaks the boys go home. With the skills each boy and his family learn, they are better prepared to communicate, relate and establish a more functional family relationship. Together they “work the program.”
