On July 1, 2019, SamaraCare Counseling and Samaritan Counseling Center, joined forces to become one of Chicagoland's largest providers of high-quality mental health services. Both organizations share a unified mission to offer options for secular and spiritually integrated care across diverse faith traditions.

The National Institute of Mental Health reports that nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness. This growing trend is why SamaraCare remains committed to its Mental Health Access Program (MHAP), which makes counseling services affordable and accessible. Through donations SamaraCare is able to provide reduced fees and subsidies for families and individuals in need of emotional and financial assistance. With more and more people requiring these vital services, MHAP continues to be a high priority initiative as the organization grows into new communities and an expanded service area.

This union also creates a sizable regional organization serving six counties that will realize administrative efficiencies and strengthen negotiating power with insurers. Another key advantage of the new larger organization will be its ability to attract and retain more highly qualified clinicians and staff. With a more impactful market presence, the organization will have significant financial opportunities that qualify it for increased funding and grant consideration.

The new organization will continue to serve children, adults, seniors, and families from Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, and Will counties. "By fully integrating into one organization, we enhance our functional strength and increase our capacity. Now, we can provide more communities with more comprehensive care across an expanded service area," said SamaraCare's President & CEO, Rev. Dr. Scott Mitchell.
