A full house for Nana’s Irish Pub to help Samaritan House help homeless families


Nana’s Irish Pub, Nye Beach

Wednesday evening was another successful fundraiser at Nana’s Irish Pub in Nye Beach for Newport’s Samaritan House which provides shelter for homeless families. Wednesday night, Nana’s joined a number of other local restaurants that donate part of their entire day’s proceeds as a donation to Samaritan House which provides emergency shelter for up to thirty days while families address urgent health care issues, locate childcare and if feasible, establish employment and permanent housing.

Samaritan also provides what’s called a transitional shelter for families who need extra time to get back on their feet. Families work toward re-establishing self-sufficiency, enroll in educational programs and save money toward getting permanent housing within three months.

Transitional Housing provides longer periods for families that are making progress but who can’t quite get permanent housing so they stay in specially designated apartments where they can develop a better credit rating, more stable rental history and save funds for permanent housing. Stays range up to six months.

Samaritan House runs monthly fundraisers at a number of Newport area restaurants. Those participating in this latest series of fundraisers include Local Ocean on the bayfront, Georgies at the Hallmark Resort on Elizabeth Street, and Chalet Restaurant and Bakery on north Coast Highway, next to Safeway.

Any restaurant that would like to participate in this much needed fundraising effort can call Samaritan House at 541-574-8898. For more information visit their website at SamFamShelter.org. You can do that by simply clicking here.
