Lynne Sipiora is the Executive Director The Samaritan Inn, a 130 bed shelter for the homeless.

The Samaritan Inn was established in 1984 after community leaders joined together to address the issue of homelessness in Collin County. Twenty five years later, The Samaritan Inn is still the only homeless shelter in a county of over 762,000 residents.

All services and support are provided free of charge through funding made from donations by churches, service groups and  organizations, corporations, and individuals. The Samaritan Inn is also a member of the United Way of Collin County.
