Once the challenge has been met through the extraordinary support of the community and our valued donors, Samaritan House will be stronger and better positioned to keep those doors open for years to come. Without you, our valued stakeholders, we would not be in a position to serve our community and continue the successful programs that make such a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. I thank each and every one of you for your continued support of our mission, both monetarily and through volunteerism, and I assure you that your financial support and efforts open the doors to a significantly better life for victims of domestic violence and homelessness.


This year we were blessed with a generous challenge endowment gift from Patricia and Douglas Perry, which is the catalyst in establishing a permanent endowment fund for Samaritan House. Our goal is to raise at least two million dollars, with half of that originating from the challenge gift.

Our Executive Director, Ruth Hill, proudly leads the largest organization of its kind in Virginia to great success, despite the downturn in the economy and increased needs of our community. We are beginning to meet those needs by implementing new programs like Rapid Re-housing, which may allow Samaritan House to serve nearly twice as many people as before.We have proudly taken on the responsibility of becoming the clearing house for victims of homelessness in Virginia Beach, matching the community services available to the needs of the homeless.

Wow! What a year for Samaritan House. With the help of many volunteers and the diligent efforts of the dedicated staff and management team leadership, Samaritan House opens its doors to an average of over 100 people per night. We continue to provide a safe harbor for families and individuals in need of a violence-free, caring environment, and are able to support them with proven programs designed to help them become self-sufficient.

This reality of opening doors has been exemplified this past year through the wonderful generosity of so many who believe that together we can make a difference in the lives of those in need of our services. We are so very thankful for each of you, our supporters, and have much to celebrate with our new endowment gift from Patricia and Douglas Perry. Please read more about this transformation gift. Helen Keller once said: “No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.� We are optimists. We will continue to provide the support to see the doorways of change stay open for all! The endowment will go a long way in helping us achieve our goals.

Daily, we hear of stories of families who tell us that their personal door is far from inviting. It is usually oppressive and dangerous, often even fatal. Here at Samaritan House we open our doors with the hope of a wonderful safe and new passage for victims of domestic violence and homelessness. We take the negative side of need and help families discover a wonderful possibility!

s a m a r i ta n h o u s e

Ruth D. Hill

Have you ever walked through an open door just to discover that what was on the other side was not what you expected? Maybe you were looking to meet a loved-one and instead you discovered an enemy.

Through The Perry Foundation, Patricia and Douglas Perry have extended an overwhelming amount of support over the past fifteen years in which they have cared for Samaritan House. They have literally opened doors for those affected by domestic violence and homelessness in our Hampton Roads community shelter— that may not have been possible without their generosity.

Patricia and Douglas Perry



h o w s a m a r i ta n house

All of this is because of the generosity, the philanthropy and the caring of a remarkable couple who want to give back from their blessings to those who need a blessing. Samaritan House owes a debt of gratitude to Patricia and Douglas Perry for all they have done, and continue to do, to support the Samaritan House mission.

Jane was interested in returning to school, and with the help of Samaritan House was accepted into Norfolk State University’s Pharmacy Technician training program. She has now passed the certification exam and is employed full-time. Jane has reached her stated goal to provide a better life for herself and her children with the help of Samaritan House. She and her daughters were able to complete the Family Empowerment Program and are now living independently in permanent housing of their own.


In addition to all they have done, the Perry’s continue to have pledged to match donations made to the Endowment Fund by third parties, solicited by Samaritan House. With this new matching grant, Samaritan House has the potential to generate a $2,000,000 Endowment Fund.

As they had been witness to long-term domestic violence and abuse, counseling was established and continued on a weekly basis. The family attended a Samaritan House support group, where healthy relationships were discussed and modeled. Jane noticed an improvement in her daughters’ selfesteem and believed the counseling was extremely beneficial to them as individuals and as a family.

annual report

Pat and Doug are saints to not only us but to the multitude of families and individuals in need who have been sheltered and supported through their generosity. Since its inception, Perry Shores has provided 480 families with safe, affordable housing. Each year over 8,000 people in crisis reach a supportive advocate through the 24-hour crisis hotline, housed in the Perry Safe Harbor Center; and 305 people (126 women and 179 children) have found housing in the two shelters the Perry’s added to the Samaritan House fleet. That is an extraordinary 121,265 people since 1996 who may not have received services were it not for the philanthropic generosity of two persons who care so much.

Jane’s children received much needed medical and dental care, clothing, and school supplies. They were able to remain in their stable school environment with the help of partner organizations providing transportation and financial assistance for school activities.

s a m a r i ta n h o u s e

In 1996, Samaritan House began the SOS/Save our Shelters Campaign. The campaign asked for each person to donate $1 to help rescue the shelters which at the time were in jeopardy of being lost. Patricia Perry met with former Board President Sue Haycox and extended the Perry’s support without hesitation. What an incredible gift! That donation was the first of many that Pat and Doug have made over the years to ensure that Samaritan House families remain housed — and critical services to the domestic violence community remain intact. In the years since, The Perry Foundation’s support has been essential in helping Samaritan House purchase a 32-unit affordable housing apartment complex named Perry Shores; secure office space which houses the Patricia and Douglas Perry Safe Harbor Center, the administrative and programming hub of Samaritan House; help fund the 2007 purchase of two additional shelters; and offered their most recent gift in June of 2011 to start an Endowment Fund.

Samaritan House believes that everyone has the right to live in a safe and peaceful environment, free from the threat of abuse or violence. When Jane was ready to ask for help for her family, she called the Samaritan House 24-hour crisis hotline. Soon she and her two daughters entered Samaritan House emergency shelter where they could find safe refuge. A Victim Advocate accompanied Jane to court and helped her obtain a preliminary protective order against her abuser.

Samaritan House is once more opening doors and showing new horizons to the homeless and to families who are victims of domestic violence. The Horizons apartment building is at the heart of the oceanfront in Virginia Beach. What was once an outdated building from the ’70s is now a group of seven streamlined modern apartments to house families who need a new beginning. The Horizons renovations include special sound-rated windows that exclude jet noise, new kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers and state-of-the-art heating and air-conditioning units, and one handicap accessible unit. All of the apartments also boast tankless water heaters, which allows room for extra storage. Each individual apartment is fully furnished with a sofa, dining room table and chairs, twin beds and dressers.

The newly renovated Horizons apartment building received its interior and exterior face lift with the help of grant money.

The newly renovated Horizons apartment building received its interior and exterior face lift with the help of grant money from the City of Virginia Beach Department of Housing & Neighborhood Preservation. For many of the families who now live in these apartments, it is the very first apartment that they can be proud to call home.

This year, as in past years, TowneBank stepped up as the major event sponsor for the Women Helping Women luncheon. Also, as part of their efforts, Audrey Parrott and WHW Ambassador Kathy Bennett organized the 2nd Annual Mother’s Day Walk, led by Betty Darden. All proceeds of both events were donated to the Women Helping Women fundraising total.

This event was organized by Chair Diane Johnston, and 14 event Ambassadors, including Kathy Bennett, Judy Brown, Cynthia Chapman, Barbara Creech, Sue Haycox, Mary Anne Kellam-Canada, Joan Lyons, Dolly Mannix, Terri McKenzie, Valerie Neff, Melissa O’Brian, Anne Perry, Cindy Rodriguez, Bev Sessoms and Founding Chair Shirley Albano.

Samaritan House would like to extend a big thank you to our many sponsors and to all of you who have helped with this wonderful event over the years. Your unfailing support of Samaritan House and the programs that do so much to open doors for women and families affected by domestic violence in our community is truly appreciated.


Women Helping Women is an organized initiative by professional and community leaders to prevent and address domestic violence.

annual report

Leslie Morgan Steiner, the event’s keynote speaker, helped dispel age-old myths about domestic violence victims. She told how as a recent Harvard graduate working at Seventeen magazine in New York City she fell in love with a charming Ivy League graduate and began a baffling and terrifying spiral down through four years of domestic violence. Steiner tells how she eventually escaped her devastating situation and was able to rebuild her career and found a happy family life with her second husband. Steiner’s full story can be read in her New York Times bestseller, Crazy Love.

Celebrating five years of service promoting education against domestic violence in our local community, Women Helping Women quintuples their contribution to Samaritan House, netting in excess of $110,000. What an awesome way to commemorate this momentous milestone in 2011.

educat ion & ou treac h



A community comes

A 2008 nationwide survey of teenagers revealed that one in three teens is in a relationship that contains violence. Samaritan House reached out to 1,029 teens last year with education on healthy relationship patterns and warning signs of abuse. With intimate partner violence being the number one cause of injury for females age 15–44, and elder abuse jeopardizing the health of a particularly vulnerable population, our outreach to the medical community provided 305 healthcare workers with screening tips and intervention strategies that will direct victims to services, support, and safety. In addition to topic specific training, the Education & Outreach program also raises awareness through events and activities that reach broad audiences. During Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Samaritan House collaborates with area shelters to host the Day of Unity/Night of Remembrance candlelight vigil, an open community event that focuses on the deep impact of domestic violence. During the year, we are present at events throughout Hampton Roads and work with many allied professionals to ensure that access to our services is available to anyone in need. Our outreach also includes legal advocacy, and coordinated efforts within our community and across the state to end domestic violence and homelessness. Education is an essential part of our mission and we look forward to expanding our reach in the coming year.


Last year, our Education & Outreach program provided 135 hours of free direct training on myriad topics related to domestic violence and homelessness. Working with various community agencies: from schools and universities, to healthcare providers, to faith-based groups and invested corporations, we were able to directly reach 2,531 people through 50 separate trainings.

s a m a r i ta n h o u s e

Samaritan House is dedicated to providing immediate services and shelter to clients in need, but we are equally as devoted to the prevention of domestic violence and homelessness in our community. Violence in relationships is epidemic, yet preventable. Through education, we are bringing our community together to focus on safety, prevention, and the tenets of love, respect, and equality.
