Samaritan House is committed to ending violence in all forms. We offer hope and healing through programs and resources designed to work with each individual’s needs. We know that no two stories of violence or abuse are identical. We also know the power of  community, and how comforting it can feel to simply hear the words: “You are not alone.”

We invite anyone who has made the journey from VICTIM to SURVIVOR to share their story – anonymously or not – to release some of the pain from the past and possibly help someone else take the steps they need to be safe and walk away.
