Why   Samaritan   House


Samaritan House Lakewood, located on the property of All Saints Episcopal Church in the heart of Lakewood, offers transitional housing and comprehensive support for 8 homeless individuals. HOUSE the homeless; not a shelter for someone to crash for the night, but short-term transitional housing – a sober-living environment. EMPOWER the homeless; counsel, provide resources, referrals, advocacy, food and targeted financial assistance to the homeless who are working to overcome a current life crisis. We have a success rate that is close to 70%; compared to the state average of 35% for this type of facility.

total number of successes:   198
as of August 31, 2018

Jubilee Award
"The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
Luke 4:18-19

At the 231st Convention of the Diocese of New Jersey, February 2015, we were presented with the designation of "a Center for Jubilee Ministry" by the National Episcopal Church. We are recognized as an example of how to reimage the use of the church's property to meet the needs of those less fortunate in our surrounding communities.

Once again, the National Episcopal Church, on July 28, 2016, recognized our efforts with this write-up.
