Linda Pacha, founder & president of Nick’s Network of Hope, is the Keynote Speaker for the 13th Annual Silent Samaritans Breakfast on September 10th, 2020. The Silent Samaritans Breakfast is dedicated to raising funds to support women and their children who come to SamaraCare seeking counseling, regardless of their ability to pay. These women are in difficult financial circumstances due to divorce, job loss, or abandonment. Many are mother parenting alone, widows isolated in their bereavement, married-women in failing relationships, and survivors of domestic abuse. They are women who need help from Silent Samaritans like you.

The Silent Samaritans Breakfast helps fund the Silent Samaritans program. There is a 7:15 am check-in time for this event.

 


Founded by the Naperville faith community 47 years ago, SamaraCare provides spirit-led counseling and an all-encompassing approach to emotional wellness.

The Silent Samaritans breakfast is dedicated to raising funds to support women, and their children, who come to SamaraCare seeking mental health counseling, regardless of their ability to pay.

These are women in difficult financial circumstances due to divorce, job loss, or abandonment. They are mothers parenting alone, widows isolated in their bereavement, married women in failing relationships, and survivors of domestic violence. They are women who need help from other Silent Samaritans like you.

Silent Samaritans grew out of the realization that:

  • Mental illness among women is on the rise. 1 in 5 women experience mental health disorders compared to 1 in 8 men
  • Women in poverty are more likely to face poor mental health
  • In our last fiscal year ended 6/30/18, more than 825 women, representing 65% of SamaraCare’s client base, sought help through counseling services.
