Fundraising: Why did we choose The Samaritan Inn

d + b real estate wants to give back to the community that we live and work in. The Inn is the only homeless shelter in Collin County and with the current economy many people are one paycheck away from needng help from the Inn.

About the Inn and Its History
The Samaritan Inn was established in 1984 after community leaders joined together to address the issue of homelessness in Collin County. Twenty five years later, The Samaritan Inn is still the largest homeless program in a county of over 762,000 residents.

All services and support are provided free of charge through funding made from donations by churches, service groups and organizations, corporations, and individuals. The Samaritan Inn is also a member of the United Way of Collin County.

The Need
Homeless families and individuals are the focus at The Samaritan Inn. In 2009, the Inn served 660 residents.

The Mission
We are a comprehensive homeless program that helps willing people gain dignity and independence.

The Goal
To help people regain their independence.

The Outcome
Over 72% of the residents graduated from our program; which means they had an income and housing when they left The Samaritan Inn last year.
