Small Victories. Big Impact.

“It feels amazing to help people that society threw away. To give them a second chance ̶̶ just like it was given to me,” says Daiana, a former Young Mothers Program (YMP) participant at Samaritan Daytop Village (SDV) who lives in Permanent Supportive Housing.

Thanks to supporters like you, Daiana began to thrive. “Today I am clean and sober, working towards my Master’s degree in Psychology, and am an Assistant Director with a mental health clinic,” she says.

Another former YMP client, Lynne, also took small steps to achieve a personal transformation that made a big impact on her life path. “I used to sleep in the park,” she says. “Now, I have a great job at the NYC Parks Department, a beautiful home, a terrific husband, and a wonderful son,” she says.

From helping young mothers engage in life-changing treatment for substance use disorder to connecting homeless families with housing, your contributions help Samaritan Daytop Village create small victories that make a big impact on our clients’ lives.

We are less than one week away from #GivingTuesday, an annual day of giving, on December 3rd. Learn more about Daiana and Lynne’s stories. Watch a video on how donors, like you, help make a difference in their lives.
