Update: As of November 5th, all of our holiday service project opportunities are currently filled. Thank you to our generous partner businesses and volunteer groups! We still need sponsors for several of our shelters and families. Please contact katec@samaritanhouseva.org to get involved.

Adopt a Home. Replace damaged furniture, provide TLC and cleaning, decorate and provide gifts for an entire Samaritan House shelter home and its residents.

Adopt a Family. Provide holiday gifts, clothes, food, household items using Samaritan House’s shopping wish lists to make the holidays a bit brighter this year.

Sponsor a Service. Make a donation that will directly impact the women, men and children we serve by covering the costs of a specific service or resource, either by donating online as a one-time or recurring gift, or inquiring about our Angel Tree Tags.

Volunteer for a Service Project. Dedicate your time and skills as a group or organization to complete a project at one of our emergency shelter properties. (2019 Dates: Saturday Dec. 7th)

Your sponsorship provides the funds needed to bring holiday cheer to a family in crisis, from toys to festive decorations. But your support also helps us mend broken things, contribute to monthly utility bills, supply a family’s meals, and help create happy Holiday memories.  For the children living in Emergency Shelter, more important than a new toy on Christmas is a bed to rest their heads, and a safe place to call home.

We ask you to join us in the Home for the Holidays program and consider making a year-end gift to provide vital services for Samaritan House families.

Please contact Kate Celius at katec@samaritanhouseva.org or (757) 323-6164 to learn more.
