Since our inception, Samaritan has always been – at our core – a community. We believe that if members have a support system and others in which to confide and trust, they are more likely to overcome obstacles and ultimately lead the lives they want. It is this belief that led us to form our life enrichment groups.

What started out as two small groups, the “Lunch Bunch” and “Communication Club”, has grown into seven life enrichment groups, all of which were recommended by members themselves. We now also offer “Fabric Arts”, “Brain Games”, “Shen Zhen Gong”, “Arts & Crafts”, and “Creative Writing & Poetry”.

“I’m really happy with the success of our groups. They give members the chance to learn something new and are an important outlet for socialization, creativity, mindfulness, and energy,” says Sharon Krieger, Program Director. What’s really wonderful are the connections participants form with each other. They share their struggles and can relate to one another, all while sharing some laughs.”

In fact, due to the popularity of these activities, we hope to add two more - the “Walking Group” and “Book Club” by summer 2018. We can’t wait.
