Smart Wallets for People Without a Home
Samaritan Growth Advocate$36k – $42k
| about |
Samaritan seeks a team member to join us in helping people on the street access the resources needed to find a home.
If that sounds like you, and you've got a history of serving disadvantaged populations or in sales, we'd love for you to consider sharing your gifts with the people we serve.
Outreach teams and case managers use our smart wallets—called beacons—as a resource for people experiencing homelessness. Individuals set their own housing and health goals and then can access the financial and social capital needed to meet those goals. In a Seattle pilot, 10 organizations used Samaritan to surround 500 chronically homeless individuals with over $100,000 and 1,000 messages of encouragement from the community. Dozens used the newfound capital to reach life-changing outcomes, like housing, work, and recovery.
