Samaritan Center of Excellence is a volunteer non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides physical, mental, and emotional health programs for women, youth (ages 8-16 years old), and families within the Monroe County area. This organization grew out of a grassroots effort in 2004 to meet the needs of women and their children. Our mission is to transform individuals by providing skill-building opportunities, fostering consumer/peer-run programs; specifically, in areas of recovery and emphasizing self-help, and mutual support. We are committed to improving the delivery of services to those with substance use disorder, mental health, and criminal justice issues to reduce the stigma associated with them.
Samaritan Center of Excellence has a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. I want to thank everyone associated with our daily work. I mean all of you: full- and part time volunteers, community partners, financial and in-kind donors and of course, clients. What hard work we do here! What incredible work we do here! Each of you in your own way does something each day to further the trek toward excellence! I value each of you.
