The Santa Maria Stabilization Center, a new six-bed facility in partnership with Marian Hospital, will provide medical support and stabilization for individuals who are experiencing homelessness and are under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

The center will give clients access to treatment and shelter, with meals and a safe environment to talk to peer specialists to receive guidance and recovery planning.

The center offers medical support, case management and referrals to community support services to ensure each person can have access to what they need to get back on their feet.

Good Samaritan runs a similar facility in Santa Barbara, the CREDO 47 Stabilization Center, a 10-bed facility in partnership with Santa Barbara County Behavioral Wellness & Public Defender.

All services for both locations are free and available 24/7, with no insurance required. They are accepting referrals from a variety of providers, law enforcement, hospitals, and partner agencies. This project will specifically serve only persons experiencing homelessness and will serve as a stepping stone on their journey to housing.

The Good Samaritan Shelter is committed to providing emergency, transitional and affordable housing with support services to the homeless and those in recovery throughout the Central Coast.

Good Samaritan Shelter provides assistance through shelter services, affordable housing, clean and sober living, drug and alcohol treatment, outreach, and education within the local community.
