Our Mission

For more than 50 years, Samaritan Daytop Village has been wholly dedicated to improving the quality of life for New Yorkers facing adversity. With its humble beginnings as a Queens counseling center, Samaritan Daytop Village has evolved into a nationally-recognized human services organization, doing more good than ever imagined. Today, Samaritan Daytop Village provides comprehensive health and human services to over 28,000 people each year through a network of more than 50 facilities located throughout New York City, Long Island and upstate New York, and we continue to grow.

Samaritan Daytop Village provides a rich array of services including substance use treatment, mental health and primary health care, specialized programs for military veterans, vocational and employment services, shelter and transitional housing, and services for seniors.

We believe that Good resides in each of our clients – men and women, our veterans, mothers and babies, the homeless, families, and the elderly. With our dedicated staff and partners in the community, we roll up our sleeves and find the good within the people we serve.
