Samaritans was proud to be the recipient of a special City Council Proclamation in 2013 that honored the contributions of our volunteers and staff in “strengthening NYC’s safety net for our most fragile, vulnerable and under-served residents, especially in their times of emotional distress, personal tragedy, man-made and natural disasters, providing immediate support to those in need and saving many lives of those experiencing despair.”

This Proclamation was sponsored by 12 City Council Members to highlight their designating September Suicide Prevention Month in NYC and was presented to over 30 Samaritans staff, board members and volunteers at a special ceremony at City Hall.
