Prior to 1988, the Winston-Salem downtown churches were actively involved in sheltering homeless people on a rotating basis on their premises. With increasing need for a homeless shelter, the downtown churches along with the Winston-Salem community rallied support for building the Samaritan Inn. The Samaritan Inn provides homeless men with safe, temporary shelter for a maximum of 90 days.

  • The 69 bed homeless shelter for men, operates at near capacity year-round
  • Guests receive shelter, dinner and breakfast
  • Samaritan counselors provide case management services
  • In 2012, the Samaritan Inn provided 22,142 nights of shelter to 660 unduplicated men
  • One night of shelter including dinner and breakfast costs $22.99
  • Every night, the Inn requires a team of 10 shelter volunteers
  • Since opening in 1988, the Samaritan Inn has provided over 636,228 nights of shelter
