Forum: Peter Dunn, "The Samaritan Community: Crisis Prevention Assistance and Empowerment Programs"

Peter Dunn, Director of Community Relations at the Samaritan Community, will discuss the activities of their assistance and empowerment programs, which include: food pantry operation; clothing shop/computer workroom; individual case management; emergency financial assistance; individual empowerment counseling; group support; and life enrichment. The Emmanuel Outreach Committee awarded a grant of $5,000 to the Samaritan Community in 2018, which was used to support the overall program of the Community’s activities as listed above. (We also assist the Samaritan Community throughout the year via the Frank Russell Memorial Clothing Drive and other donations.) Herschel Wade, chair of the Outreach Committee, will introduce the speaker and briefly discuss Emmanuel’s relationship with the grantee during the past two years.
