Encouraging All Who Enter Our Doors to Experience Positive Life Change

Because Samaritan Community Center has become a vital resource to people in Northwest Arkansas experiencing economic, emotional and spiritual distress we established a program designed around our Vision statement of encouraging all who enter our doors to find hope and experience positive life change. Samaritan Care is the name we gave to the program that deals with our client advocacy and counseling needs.

As with all other SCC programs, Samaritan Care services are free.


Clients provided with social service in 2020


Care Advocates goal is to assess needs, eliminate barriers, and empower clients towards stability.

What we do:

  • Refer individuals to appropriate organizations relevant to their needs
  • Guide individuals through the resource connection process and assess eligibility for programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, HUD Housing
  • Provide case management for clients in need of longer term support
  • Provide Samaritan Shop clothing vouchers for children once every nine months and for adults meeting qualifying criteria

Samaritan Community Center does not provide financial assistance.

All programs provided by the SCC are free. No proof of need or documentation is required to receive program assistance.

Our Care Advocates see clients on a first-come, first-serve basis at both the Springdale and Rogers Centers.

“We focus on meeting each client just where they are. So many of our clients do not have a support system. We are here to offer client advocacy through crisis intervention and case management, by assisting in supporting the process of connecting clients to the resources they need.”
