Polly arrived at Samaritan Community this past May. She was actively looking for work, but on the verge of becoming homeless and was in desperate need of help. Despite the dire circumstances, Polly was wonderfully positive and determined to make the changes necessary to have the life she wanted. Samaritan Community immediately provided her with enough healthy groceries to last a week and helped her with the security deposit and first month’s rent on an affordable apartment.

Tragically, after this, her abusive ex-boyfriend found her and attacked her on the street. Her landlords went above and beyond to switch her to a new apartment in a neighborhood where she would not be found. And Samaritan Community helped Polly with costs related to this necessary and critical relocation.

Soon after moving, Polly found a good paying job and has already been promoted to a supervisory position. She is happy and living a joyful and productive life.

“It's amazing how I was able to turn around my life when I had people who believed in me and loved me through the process”.

Polly is a beautiful example of positive transformation. Everyone at Samaritan Community feels so grateful that we get to know people like Polly and share the excitement and joy of their successes.
