The Silent Samaritan breakfast is dedicated to raising funds to support women and their children, who come to SamaraCare seeking counseling, regardless of their ability to pay. These are women in difficult financial circumstances due to divorce, job loss, or abandonment. They are mothers parenting alone, widows isolated in their bereavement, married women in failing relationships, and survivors of domestic abuse. They are women who need help from Silent Samaritans like you.
Silent Samaritan started in 2007 with the realization that: nationally, over 60% of those who seek counseling are women; year after year, we have more than 280 women seek our services who require a fee subsidy; and women are more likely than men to be victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
To fund the Silent Samaritan program, we hold a very popular annual fundraising breakfast that features a keynote speaker and a recipient of the program who tells her story. Most recently, this program has been held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
