About Samaritan Outreach Wilmington
Samaritan Outreach provides intensive case management and referral services to people who are poor, homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Many live on streets, in parks or in abandoned buildings or cars. Staff reach out also to people recently released from prison or facilities that treat substance abuse and mental health disabilities. Homeless clients also may tend to personal hygiene with shower facilities, clean towels, a change of clothing and toiletries.
Staff at Samaritan Outreach provide case management services that help stabilize the lives of the homeless with referrals to mental health treatment, rehabilitation and supportive services. They also distribute food boxes to the poor. Among the 4,200 clients who visit this facility each year, many receive guidance and support in entering shelters or residential rehabilitation programs, securing legal aid, enrolling in job placement programs or in obtaining benefits or medical treatment from government and private agencies. Such referrals may help the poor to secure jobs, housing and assistance for paying utilities and rent.
