Message from the CEO

Hello all,

My name is David Sampson and I have the tremendous honor and privilege to serve as the CEO of this remarkable organization. Hopefully you’ve perused our website to read about the programs and services that we offer to people in need of treatment for the disease of addiction. Now, I would like to take a brief moment to share the tenets of our success as an agency; Our Mission, Core Values, Philosophy and Vision.

Our Mission

Mariners Inn serves as an anchor for those struggling to navigate the treacherous waters of homelessness and substance abuse by providing professional and compassionate residential substance abuse treatment for homeless men, and providing youth, adults, and families within our community the highest quality prevention and intervention programs.

Our Core Values are:

  • Access
  • Compassion
  • Dignity & Respect
  • Integrity
  • Quality
  • Collaboration
  • Commitment

Our Philosophy:

Recovery is possible and real…and begins at Mariners Inn

Our Vision:

To build a recovery community that’s modeled, productive and sustainable

We are fortunate to have such dedicated professionals who practice these tenets daily and give their expertise, time, energy and passion to the people we serve and the organization. Our success and reputation as a leading agency in the recovery community is due, in part, to their undying compassion and willingness to provide quality services.

Finally, I am absolutely ecstatic to report that $.80 of every $1.00 you contribute to our mission is spent on helping the people we serve (the national average for charities and nonprofits is $.64 of every $1.00). Therefore, I felt it prudent and necessary to report to you that we have been tremendous stewards of your contributions.

Thank you for your belief in our mission and thank you for helping us return men to their families and the community clean and sober… One Father At A Time”.

We believe, with everything we do and say, that Recovery is Real…and Begins at Mariners Inn!


David Sampson, LMSW
