Samaritan House Women’s Shelter
Samaritan House is a shelter for single, homeless women. Samaritan House provides comprehensive services as well as referrals to outside treatment programs for women suffering from substance abuse, mental illness, domestic violence, HIV/AIDS. Some are just out of prison on parole.
The shelter has 19 transitional beds for residents referred by the Westchester County Department of Social Services (DSS) and 4 emergency beds for nightly drop-in clients. Emergency guests are provided with overnight shelter, clothing, toiletries, meals, snacks and referrals.
Each resident receives ongoing case management supports while in the shelter to ensure that she can choose the best mix of treatment and service options for her individual needs. Our primary objective is to help women transition into permanent housing and, to help ensure success, follow-up services are provided after discharge.
Samaritan House prides itself on the number of women who have successfully used their time with us to move on to more stable, productive and fulfilling lives.
