The Samaritan Center has been saving lives, healing emotional wounds and giving hope to individuals and families for over 40 years. The Center’s mission is to improve the mental, physical, and spiritual health of children and families in Central Texas.

We provide professional counseling, integrative medicine, and psychiatric services that are accessible and affordable for all, especially vulnerable populations such as uninsured or underinsured low-income families, and veterans struggling with the emotional wounds of war.

The Samaritan Center also partners with the Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) to provide additional support for our veterans and their families.
