Our non-profit organization is dedicated to aiding those less fortunate. Located in Sidney Ohio we sustain two houses that provide sober living homes for men or women who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. We are a non-denominational Christian ministry that promotes faith, hope, structure, accountability and whole life recovery to foster independent living and long term sobriety. Each home has an effective program model that helps individuals reach goals and their full potential.

The Samaritan Works Incorporated is a 501(c)3 non profit faith based organization that sustains two sober living homes for men and women with substance abuse in Sidney, Ohio.  We have a governing board of local citizens, a full-time director, and a part-time assistant director that provides daily oversight and case management  for each resident. We are located in downtown Sidney, Ohio on the Sidney First UMC campus.


"Why don't you just have one beer and stop?"

"Can't you see how you're hurting yourself and the ones you love?"

Drug and alcohol addiction is complicated and brings chaos into a person's life ranging from mental health and medical issues, legal trouble, poverty, hopelessness and much more. However, the answer to addiction is simple - FAITH, RECOVERY PRINCIPLES AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. The Samaritan Works guides people from a life of chaos toward a life of serenity through a simple whole live recovery plan.
