Monthly Newsletter February 2010

This issue of the newsletter touches on three important facets of life at Samaritan House. You will read about an opportunity for a group of our residents (who give back to Sam House by singing in our choir) to step out and attend an inspiring community event. Sadly, you will also hear about the passing of a member of the Samaritan House family who has given of himself to make Samaritan House a good home for himself and many others. You will be reminded that AIDS is not a thing of the past - residents (and many in the outside community) still struggle with the disease and with the many conditions caused by their HIV status. And finally, you will meet a new staff member whose efforts are essential to supporting our ongoing process of rescuing, nurturing and launching those in need of our services.

New Grants Manager Susan Essary

When Susan Essary, a North Texas native who has called Fort Worth home for many years, saw a job posting for a grant writer for Samaritan House, she had already heard of the agency and knew its good reputation in the community.

I'm always moved by and grateful for the courage and determination of our residents as they work to overcome the barriers they face, whether physical illness or learning to function as members of the larger community. I'm also deeply appreciative of the dedication and hard work of our staff as they support and further the efforts of the residents to overcome their challenges. Our volunteers and donors make up the third group essential to the success of what we do. Please join us in helping Samaritan House and its residents thrive.
