Working to Empower Individuals
"Living at the Transition House helped me
in so many ways. I have leanred to do many
things on my own much better, like
managing my money, learning computer
and journal writing. My confidence has really
grown through my writing and I am very happy
to say I have two part-time jobs now."
"After nine months as a student in the Samaritan House Tutoring Program, Kyle's confidence grew. His marks improved and his attitude towards learning changed. When Kyle was in grade 9 he wanted to help out as a tutor and worked for a year in the tutoring program at Samaritan House. With all his hard work and preseverance, Kyle recieved a Certificate of Excellence Award in grade 9."

"As an outsider looking at the various services offered by Samaritan House, I am very impressed with the calibre of assistance people are recieving. Every person who works of volunteers at Samaritan House is caring, thoughtful and dedicated to helping others. The drop-in program is extremely well run by a group of wonderful volunteers who work hard to keep things running smoothly. The program offers much more than clothing and household items for people in need; it offers a warm, inviting place where people can come and get a cup of coffee and talk to someone who truely cares!"
