The Samaritan Inn
Faithbridge Presbyterian Church will be adopting our 5th Samaritan Inn Gateway apartment this fall. If you are not familiar with the Gateway apartments, they are the only apartment complex in the nation dedicated to helping those homeless individuals or families who are successful “graduates” of the Samaritan Inn begin their road to gaining independence. To qualify individuals must have full-time employment and pay a percentage of their wages in subsidized rent and utilities.
We will be adopting a one-bedroom apartment which means we will furnish everything (from furniture, dishes to cleaning supplies) needed for the new resident to move in and begin their transition to long term financial stability and independence. The anticipated move in date for our resident is November.
There are several ways you can participate in this mission project:
1. Use the link below to access a Sign Up Genius website and select items you wish to adopt, purchase and bring to the church to drop off on the designated dates.
2. Donate financially through Faithbridge Presbyterian Church E-Stewardship via the link below to make monetary donations to the “Gateway Apartment” fund which will be used to purchase the necessary furniture.
3. Volunteer to help set up the apartment just prior to the new resident move in date.
