Samaritan Inn

Ministry Partner – Samaritan Inn

Samaritan Inn is a missions partner for Creekwood. 

They are an organization located in McKinney that helps those experiencing homelessness transition to self-sufficiency. 

The Samaritan Inn has been serving the Collin County community since 1984. Since then, their services have positively impacted the North Texas area and the lives of thousands of people experiencing homelessness. 

Their mission has been to create a comprehensive homeless program that helps willing people gain dignity and independence. 

The Samaritan Inn is more than just a place to spend the night. Their program takes a holistic approach that supports those experiencing homelessness with everything they need and teaches them life skills to expedite their journey back to self-sufficiency. On a given night, approximately 160 people sleep at the Inn, of which 1 out of 3 are children.
