Annual Celebration Highlights Expansion Plans

Over 400 friends and supporters enjoyed an afternoon of food and fun at the annual Samaritan House picnic. The eight-acre campus of the Samaritan House, a residential care facility just off Forest Drive for men suffering from alcohol and drug addiction, was open to former and current clients, families and community members on Sunday, June 9, for a day of celebration.


Bands played on an outdoor stage throughout the afternoon, while guests enjoyed hamburgers, hotdogs, barbecue and traditional picnic fare.  Special attractions included a dunking booth, basketball tournament, face painting and a visit from The Reptile Man, who set up a mini-petting zoo with a wide variety of rescued animals.


This year’s event also highlighted growth plans for the Samaritan House, the only certified residential care facility in the Annapolis area exclusively for men.  In October 2012, the Board of Directors launched a Campus of Recovery fundraising campaign to double the capacity for transitional housing and add space for out-patient counseling and support activities.


Samaritan House board president Kirk Noonan said approval for the site plan and grading permit is in the final stages.  In tandem with construction plans, Samaritan House is also moving forward with expansion of treatment offerings, recently receiving certification for outpatient services.


“The Samaritan House has been helping men suffering from the ravages of addiction of over 40 years,” Noonan said.  “The Campus of Recovery expansion will provide services desperately needed in the community and set the stage for growth and progress for the next 40 years.”

Samaritan House History PDF Print E-mail

Since 1971, Samaritan House has helped men on their journey to an addiction-free life.  Founded by recovering addicts who saw a need for residential care, Samaritan House started on West Street in Annapolis, Maryland. After receiving state certification, the Samaritan House moved operations to eight wooded acres in a secluded pocket of the city.  In this serene location, clients participate in individual and group counseling, relapse prevention and life-skills training under the guidance of professionally trained staff.  The campus features a halfway house that can accommodate sixteen men and a transitional house with accommodations for nine.
