For the last 32 years, Miriam’s Kitchen has served a nutritious breakfast to men and women in the District who are chronically homeless, feeding more than 4,000 people each year. Today, Miriam's offers "more than a meal": it is a leading advocate for a more effective and efficient homeless services system. In the dining room, where dinner is now served, case managers work one-on-one to meet guests' needs – providing them with clothing and toiletries, connecting them to critical social services, and helping them find jobs and housing. Other community organizations bring their services (healthcare, legal support, HIV testing) on site to further streamline support. But a stable home for all is the ultimate goal, so Miriam’s offers wrap-around care to 95 formerly homeless individuals who now live in Permanent Supportive Housing, helping them integrate into the community and remain safely housed. A Street Outreach Program was launched this spring, and Miriam's has committed itself to join with the city in a historic commitment to end chronic homelessness by 2017. You can help make this vision a reality.
