The Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity will assume operations of Samaritan House and Tim’s House this summer. As a program of CVOEO, the emergency shelter will be sustained as a community asset and critical resource for people in need. 

Ben Kaufmann, program director at Samaritan House, stated the shelter has worked tirelessly since 1993 to support people experiencing homelessness and this new management structure will allow us to better serve our clients and the community.

“We are thrilled to work with CVOEO to improve our emergency shelter and case management services and to provide quality care to people experiencing homelessness in our area,” he stated in the release.
