What does it mean to Empower?

Through permanence, we deliver a sense of love, belonging, health and well-being that empowers the people we  serve with a feeling of personal control, confidence and worthiness to live their fullest life.


More Than 80 Years of Service

Samaritas, one of the state’s largest faith-based nonprofits, has been sending ripples of positive change into Michigan communities since 1934. Prior to 2016, Samaritas operated as Lutheran Social Services of Michigan. Samaritas provides a continuum of care to all in need. We believe in diversity and inclusion, for the people we serve and the people we employ.
