Fort Worth community fully commits to those impacted by HIV/AIDS
When Samaritan House was founded in 1991, AIDS was a terminal diagnosis, one that required both extensive medical care and significant emotional support.
As times have changed, and a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS can be managed with a much better outlook, Samaritan House adopted the mission of creating a community to help individuals with HIV/AIDS live the fullest life possible.
It also serves as a supportive housing environment for people and families of those with major health problems, as well as those who are otherwise without housing.
Case management, home healthcare, nutrition services, and life skills programs are just a few of the services and projects Samaritan House has offered residents for more than two decades.
But it is the method in which residents learn the skills needed to move from a fully supported environment to a life of independence and self-sufficiency that is the greatest measure of Samaritan House’s success.
