Medford Remodeling loves our local community! Each month, we look for charity events and causes around DFW that benefit our local community. If you love chocolate and wine, there is a great event coming up in February that will allow you to indulge while helping those in need!
Whole Foods Market of Fort Worth is hosting a wine and chocolate pairing event that gives back to the community. All ticket sales will support Samaritan House located in local Fort Worth.
History of Samaritan House
The mission of Samaritan House is to create a supportive community providing housing and resources for positive change in the lives of persons living with HIV/AIDS and other special needs.
Established in 1991, Samaritan House was created to provide housing to people living with HIV/AIDS. At the time, AIDS was a terminal diagnosis, requiring intensive medical care and support during residents’ final days. With advances in medical care, life expectancies grew and Samaritan House realigned its mission to help clients establish goals, improve life skills, and work toward self-sufficiency.
Today, Samaritan House provides supportive housing to individuals and families who are impacted by major health issues such as HIV/AIDS and who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. Along with housing services, residents participate in case management services, drug and alcohol abuse/dependency intervention, educational and employment assistance, and life skills training. These comprehensive services open doors to hope and provide opportunities for independent, fulfilling lifestyles. Some residents continue their education, others obtain employment, and many begin contributing to the community through volunteer services.
