Samaritan Community is a proud member of the Bolton Hill community. Located in the basement of Memorial Episcopal Church, we are an independent 501c(3) human services non-profit. Our mission is to aid individuals and families who are in crisis and want to improve their lives.
In her day job, Katia Pokhodnya works from her Bolton Hill home for the Securities and Exchange Commission. She responds to whistleblowers – sometimes brave, aggrieved men and women willing to report corporate wrongdoing or fraud.
North Avenue Mission, a short walk east of Bolton Hill in Station North, calls itself a fellowship – of the unhoused and formerly unhoused; people who are food and housing insecure; those who use drugs or are in recovery; people of faith, no faith and different faiths; some with disabilities or mental illness; and a cadre of friends, neighbors and supporters.
After eight months of pandemic, we all yearn to see better days return. Then thoughts turn to the question, “What can I do to help now?” Start at home by supporting the organizations that serve our community. And as with all non-profits these days, they need our support this fall more than ever.
