About the Saint Samuel Center
The Saint Samuel Center is the home of three residential programs offered by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Harrisburg – Evergreen House, Interfaith Shelter for Homeless Families, and Lourdeshouse Maternity Home. Evergreen House provides a nurturing and therapeutic environment for women recovering from the disease of addiction. Interfaith Shelter for Homeless Families is the only homeless shelter in the Cumberland/Dauphin/Perry County region that keeps families together during a homeless crisis. Lourdeshouse Maternity Home provides quality services to pregnant women who have nowhere else to turn.
Prior to 2012, each of the three “Homes for Healing” was located in separate facilities. In May of that year, the homes were moved to the Saint Samuel Center.
“Hope for All” Campaign
While having each of the Homes for Healing under one roof is advantageous, there are issues with the Saint Samuel Center that need to be addressed. In particular, there is a lack of handicapped accessible bedrooms, bathrooms, elevators, and ramps. In addition, the building needs other energy improvements and technology upgrades. All of these improvements are necessary in order to better serve the needs of the individuals at the Center.
To help meet this challenge, Catholic Charities and the Diocese of Harrisburg have embarked on a fundraising campaign to secure the funding needed to reach our goal of having a fully functional and handicapped accessible facility. Through the financial generosity of those who support the “Hope for All” Campaign, Catholic Charities will be better positioned to provide help and create hope for those in need at the Saint Samuel Center.
