Our Mission

For more than 60 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 33,000 people each year through a network of more than 60 facilities located throughout New York City, Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley, 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 adolescents, families and seniors.

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