Samaritan House is a homeless shelter and transitional living program in Kalispell, Montana. Our mission is to provide shelter and basic needs for homeless people, while fostering self-respect and human dignity.
Our hope at Samaritan House is to help our clients overcome homelessness. Our shelter program encourages and supports clients by teaching them interdependent skills that lead them to live an independent lifestyle.
Clients meet with case managers weekly, or sometimes more, to check in and set goals for their future. Case Managers require clients to come up with budget plans and work towards earning employment and income to support themselves.
Our case managers have backgrounds in social services and connect our clients to local resources. Clients are able to finally get the medical health care, veteran support services, or other human resources they deserve. As a program, we’ve seen significant success in our clients within the shelter program. When our clients work hard with the case managers they are more likely to leave the shelter program no longer homeless and with a stable income.
