Covenant Congregations

The congregations listed below have entered into an agreement with the Samaritan Center so that the two organizations can share a common mission of Healing, Hope and Growth for the community. They represent our Partners in Mission and Ministry, some even going so far as to allow the Center to use space within their buildings free of charge so that we can offer "satellite offices" where clients can meet with their therapist in a location more convenient to where they live or work.
