As a part of Holy Cross Services’ commitment to building a truly integrated and collaborative wellness community here at the Samaritan Center, we will be introducing a number of new opportunities to engage our partners. These include quarterly partner meetings, a partner and community advisory board, and a monthly newsletter to keep all informed of everything happening in and around the Center! Your engagement and feedback are critical to building a collaborative that truly works together to serve our community; we simply hope to create that platform that allows you all to continue doing the great work you do each and every day here at the Samaritan Center.
