Samaritan Daytop Village

Social Services

There is one organization that has been doing communities of good…worlds of good for New Yorkers for more than 60 years: Samaritan Daytop Village: Where Good Lives®. What began as one community’s compassionate effort to reach struggling youth, Samaritan Daytop Village has evolved into a comprehensive human services agency with more than 60 locations across New York City and beyond. Samaritan Daytop Village offers a rich array of programs including treatment for substance use, supportive housing and shelters, peer recovery services, and specialized programs for veterans, adolescents, seniors and families.

Why Samaritan?

Good for our communities

There is not a single one of us who doesn’t know someone who might benefit from the services of Samaritan Daytop Village. Each person who enters our programs can create a wave of success that ripples outward. Samaritan Daytop Village returns hundreds of men and women to communities across New York as productive and contributing members.

Good for those who want to be themselves again

Recovery from addiction means having peace of mind with oneself and others. Samaritan Daytop Village offers evidence-based residential and outpatient treatment, detoxification, mental health services, and on-site medical care for men and women struggling with substance use, and guides them to the road to recovery.

Good for those who have protected our freedoms

Samaritan Daytop Village pioneered programs to help veterans suffering from substance use, post-traumatic stress disorders and other life challenges. Today, we operate three residential treatment facilities for veterans including the nation’s first exclusively for women veterans.

Good for families

Challenges like substance use, certain mental health diagnoses, and homelessness can tear families apart. Our comprehensive line-up of services work keep families together, improve overall health and wellness, and provide stable housing to homeless or near homeless families.

Good for those who are ready to have their own place

Samaritan Daytop Village works with men, women and families in our shelters, family and single-adult residences, and treatment programs to help them build the needed skills and identify the resources to return to their communities and live independently. Samaritan Daytop Village is expanding its permanent housing services to assist individuals and families who have the means to rent an affordable home.

Good for those who want to work

Samaritan Daytop Village provides vocational and educational assessment, career counseling, job placement assistance, and referrals for literacy and skills training to ensure clients become gainfully employed and self-sufficient when they leave our programs and return to the community.

Good for senior citizens

A safe, creative place to go. A place to feel connected. Samaritan Daytop Village offers so much to senior citizens who yearn for a community and an engaging calendar of activities. Our vibrant senior center provides a place for seniors who are looking for ways to stay active and stay connected.
