Samaritan Daytop Foundation was created in 1979 to oversee fundraising efforts for Samaritan Daytop Village. Donations fund a growing wish list of enhanced programs and services benefiting the clients of Samaritan Daytop Village.
Samaritan Daytop Foundation champions Samaritan Daytop Village’s mission to improve the quality of life for thousands of New Yorkers. Through a rich array of specialized health and human services, Samaritan Daytop Village brings lifesaving and life-changing services to men and women, adolescents, veterans, mothers and babies, the homeless, families, and the elderly.
With the help of financial and in-kind donations from individual, business, and community supporters, Samaritan Daytop Foundation invests in the agency's people and programs doing more good than ever imagined.
From humble beginnings to national inspiration, Samaritan Daytop Village had one mission in mind when it opened its doors in 1960: To make a difference during a deadly heroin epidemic. That mission evolved over the years to respond to new epidemics, a homeless crisis, systemic racism, and a pandemic. Samaritan Daytop Village continues to adapt, grow, and thrive to ensure the health and wellbeing of New Yorkers.
