President's Message

Over a span of more than 50 years, Samaritan Daytop Village has developed a portfolio of health and social services that ranks among New York’s best. As one of New York State’s premier human service providers, we have responded to the unique needs of our clients with ingenuity and optimism. A pioneer in substance abuse treatment and veteran-specific programs, we have evolved to include services to treat and support New Yorkers with a range of physical and mental health needs, shelters, transitional and permanent housing solutions, and programs for women, children, families and seniors.

We are the Samaritan Daytop Village you know – in your neighborhoods and communities – serving those around you. We embrace our strong reputation for quality services, outstanding facilities and expert staff, and strive to excel in a transitioning healthcare environment.

As a leading provider of human services, we rely on the pillars of our organization – our expertise and commitment to excellence. Samaritan Daytop Village is working to ensure continuous quality care through ongoing implementation of evidence-based and best practices linked to research. We are monitoring the impact of health care reform on our services. And as an advocate for our field, we actively seek the partnerships and resources necessary to ensure the success of Samaritan Daytop Village and its clients.

What began decades ago as an outreach program to struggling members in our community continues today with an even greater awareness of the needs of New Yorkers and a commitment to delivering a quality continuum of care. At the root of Samaritan Daytop Village’s ongoing growth and advancement remains the place “Where Good Lives.”
