It is rare to see a frustration so commonly experienced and yet so unaddressed—specifically, knowing how to respond when confronted with someone in need on the street. Samaritan makes it simple to give, with clarity that a contribution will help a person advance their life.

Samaritan distributes electronic “beacons”, about the size of a quarter, to individuals in need through nonprofit shelters (starting with the Union Gospel Mission in Seattle). If you have the Samaritan app and pass by or meet a beacon holder, you’ll receive a simple notification with the opportunity to give or learn of the person’s journey.
