family is everything


A partnership of Samaritas and Wayne County, offering emergency shelter for homeless families. We welcome: two-parent families, single mothers or fathers with children and pregnant women.

More On Family Center

We believe that no matter your budget, everyone deserves a beautiful, comforting place to live. For people on a fixed income, with low or no income, Samaritas offers affordable living in Michigan thanks to our HUD-subsidized communities.

More On Affordable Living

Through Samaritas’ Family Preservation programs, we seek to guide parents toward creating a satisfying, nurturing home life for the entire family, to keep children in their natural setting with their biological parents.

More On Family Preservation

Samaritas staff work with families to make changes that resolve a situation where a child has an emotional disturbance. Services can include counseling for individuals, couples, or the entire family. 

More On Behavioral Health

 

Our community-based residential programs are tailored to fit the needs of each person who calls them home-from those requiring 24/7 care or to individuals who are more independent.

More On Disability Support

building a healthy home

We all need a solid home base to help us grow to our full potential. If it takes a village to raise a child, it may also require a community to form a healthy family.

At Samaritas, we seek to empower families toward strength and wholeness. Our programs guide families along the path of staying intact, and when that is not possible, we help children find safe, nurturing alternative settings where they can flourish and thrive.
