The Samaritan Daytop Foundation Virtual Gala is their biggest event of the year to raise critically needed funds to deliver enhanced services, innovative programs, facility improvements, and so much more for clients.
From the beginning of this COVID19 pandemic, staff has continuously worked in order to make sure that New York’s most vulnerable have access to life saving services and needed programs that address timely issues such as the opioid epidemic, the homelessness crisis, and racial injustice.
Over 33,000 individuals annually benefit from Samaritan Daytop Village’s life-changing programs, including specialized services for veterans, seniors, youth and families. 65% of clients identify as African American or Latinx.
