People We Serve

New York is unlike any other place in the world. Its people are great. And their needs are great.

There is one organization that understands this – and has been doing communities of good, worlds of good for New Yorkers for nearly 60 years – Samaritan Daytop Village.

Our core focus is the people we serve – men and women struggling with addiction, military veterans, mothers and babies, families, homeless New Yorkers, and the elderly. Our programs are innovative and responsive to the changing needs of the people we serve. We believe that “Good” resides in every one of our clients. Our goal is to find it, nurture it and help it grow to its fullest potential.

Samaritan Daytop Village’s work with veterans is just one example of how we provide customized services to meet the needs of the people who come through our doors. Samaritan Daytop Village is widely recognized as a trailblazer for pioneering specialized treatment for veterans struggling with substance use, post-traumatic stress disorder and other challenges. In 1996, Samaritan Daytop Village opened a licensed residential treatment facility for veterans in midtown Manhattan, and in 2011 we opened the nation’s first residential treatment facility exclusively for women veterans.
