We are fundraising so everyone in our community has access to safe housing
Samaritan House began serving people experiencing homelessness in Franklin & Grand Isle Counties in 1993. Based in St. Albans, VT, Samaritan House operates Tim’s House – an emergency shelter for adult individuals experiencing homelessness. Our dedicated team of Housing Advocates supports our clients by providing housing case management and coordination with other vital services en route to safe, affordable, stable housing. Thanks to the support of local churches, businesses, foundations and individuals, Samaritan House continues to make a vital difference in our community. Samaritan House is one of the many great programs of CVOEO.
Tim’s House, a transitional housing center and a division of Samaritan House, was named after Timothy Joseph Bovat. Bovat, a life-long Franklin County, Vermont resident passed away in February 2000 from a traumatic brain injury while doing what came naturally to him, serving others. His legacy lives on as the namesake of our shelter, and in his longstanding impact in our community.
