Campaign Goal: $300,000
Samaritan Counseling, Guidance, Consulting has a deeply felt purpose and calling.
We’re called to bring hope and healing to people throughout Western Pennsylvania who are suffering with emotional, mental, relational and spiritual pain. A vital part of our mission is reaching out and helping to revitalize people in
under-served areas. We are expanding from Allegheny, Beaver, and Butler counties into under-served counties such as Washington, Greene, Lawrence, Westmoreland, and Armstrong.
A Critical Need
Over 50% of Western Pennsylvania residents who need mental healthcare do not get treatment
due to shortage of services, lack of resources, and limited accessibility.
To Address this Critical Need . . .
we’re expanding our outreach and hiring more therapists, a more involved process than in most vocations. It generally takes 8-10 months for new therapists to be credentialed with insurance companies and build a full caseload. Start-up costs of $46,500 per therapist inhibit organizations like ours from expanding into underserved areas.
We need your help to revitalize the lives of those who are suffering. That is why we’re asking caring people like you to join our SOAR Campaign to fund a portion of these costs.
SOAR with US!
We hire only the best. Our therapists are Master level and state-licensed. They are compassionate healers who choose to be Samaritans because we offer a level of care that is lacking in other counseling centers.
We help heal people in ways that are best for them. Spiritually grounded in their therapeutic approach, Samaritan therapists are client-centered, meaning that they work within the context of our clients’ personal faith beliefs.
Samaritan’s counseling services bring healing to over 1,100 men, women, and children each year. We provide financial aid for those who seek our help, but do not have health insurance or other resources to pay.
We also offer unique educational programs, including Caring for Clergy and Congregations services to nurture the health and well-being of pastors and churches.

One in five adults, and one in six children in the U.S. suffer with mental health challenges. Please SOAR with us to give them hope!
