We ask you to Be the Rock that Starts the Ripple so we can continue to meet the growing needs of over 16,000 children, families and seniors in Michigan each year. Your sponsorship brings health, hope and wholeness to at-risk children who need a foster or adoptive home, offers New Americans safety and self-sufficiency with a place to call home, provides care for persons with disabilities and a continuum of care for seniors and affordable housing for the most vulnerable in our community.

We have five senior living locations, 14 affordable living communities for seniors and people with disabilities, and we are the largest private adoption and foster care agency in the state. Samaritas’ diverse staff of nearly 2,000 members share a dedication to serving their fellow humans by doing the right thing, for the right reasons, every day.

More than safe harbor in crisis, Samaritas comes through, when others don’t, with a path home. Samaritas connects all people based on their individual circumstances with the families and communities that will empower them to live their fullest life possible. Potential fulfilled, those served then promote the dignity of others, launching into the community an unending ripple effect of transformation.
