Literacy Program Launches

The new Samaritan House literacy program launches this month, under the direction of Rick Isaminger, Family Health and Education Coordinator. Sam House clients will use this program to improve their reading and writing skills, another step along the path to independence.

Z's Celebrates

On Monday, February 15 Z's Café celebrated its one-year anniversary with a reception and buffet. Z's sumptuous spread attracted throngs of well-wishers to the café. Sales of Z's hand-made chocolates for Valentine's Day produced a $100 donation for the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Samaritan House residents who work at Z's had a busy night on their hands.

Come Tour with Us

March SamariTours are scheduled for 5:30 on the evening of the 9th and 11:45 a.m. on the 25th. These one-hour information sessions include life stories told by residents, a tour of the facilities, and an opportunity to ask questions about the agency's programs. Lunch is provided on the 25th. Visitors are often surprised to hear about positive life changes made possible by Samaritan House. For reservations and information, please contact 817.332.6410, x195 or

Stars of Joe's Run: Our Volunteers
Monthly Newsletter March 2010
Dear Jacqueline,
There's a Joe's Run buzz in the air at Samaritan House. It's the time of year when volunteers scurry around with stacks of t-shirts and the Youngman Family Room fills up with goody bags for the runners. Registrations pour in via the web and regular mail. We're reminded once again how crucial volunteers are to fulfilling and sustaining the mission of our agency. It's always inspiring to see the extra effort put in not only by volunteers, but also by staff and residents, to make Joe's Run - and Samaritan House - a success.

Bright Outlook for 13th Annual Joe's Run

It appears that Mother Nature will be more cooperative for the 13th Annual Joe's Run on March 27 this year. Those who ran or volunteered last year will remember braving extreme cold and damp, but this year the Old Farmer's Almanac is forecasting fair weather and a turn toward spring for that day.
Stars of Joe's Run: Our Volunteers

Running 10 kilometers on race day may take a lot of effort, but there's another large group of folks who get a real workout in the weeks before Joe's Run and on race day itself. Two hundred volunteers give their time and use their skills each year to make Joe's Run a success.
Accounting for All at Sam House

Accounting for All at Sam House

Tom Church, the Samaritan House accountant, takes a lot of teasing about being the most popular person on campus on paydays, since he's the one who hands out the paychecks. The truth is that he's regarded by staff and residents as a giving person in many other ways as well.

There's always something interesting going on at Samaritan House, and always friendly people to meet, be they staff, residents or supporters of the agency. We invite you to come by and share the excitement of race day, or to serve as a volunteer. And if you haven't been to see us in a while, we encourage you to attend one of our SamariTours. Better yet, bring a few of your friends and help spread the word about the difference we're making in people's lives.
