You're invited to an open house to tour and celebrate the new women's shelter at MICAH House! This is an opportunity for the community to see the space and learn more about MICAH House’s mission.
Coffee and pastries will be provided.
Imagine being a single female, with no place to go - no home, no food, and nowhere to turn for help.
On any given day, more than 200 women are on the MICAH House waiting list seeking safe shelter and support services.
Since 1986, MICAH House has provided safe shelter, nutritious meals, and support services to homeless individuals as they seek a better tomorrow. Shelter Reimagined is a campaign to remodel existing areas of MICAH House. The Shelter Reimagined campaign will expand shelter and services to the homeless community while embracing and enhancing the uniqueness of our loving shelter environment.
To complete this project, MICAH House has the goal of raising
$3.6 million by the end of 2018.
The second floor renovation will build-out client rooms to accommodate 26 beds for single females experiencing homelessness. Additional space will be used to create seven offices, a therapy room, laundry facilities, dining area, and client lounge. The existing bathroom will be expanded to offer shower
The first floor renovation will transform 50% of conference room space into a healthcare clinic. The 1,100 square foot clinic, in partnership with All Care Health Center, will include three exams rooms allowing clients and community members access to health and dental services regardless of ability to pay.
Josh and his wife Shelly knew their adopted daughter Shianne spent some time homeless as a young child with her biological family, and Shianne remembers constantly moving from shelter-to-shelter. Little did they know, Shianne had lived at MICAH House not once, but twice.
“It’s comforting to know that children who are struggling in the same way I did, have a safe place to go,” reflects Shianne. “Children do not choose the life they have been given, and MICAH House provides families an opportunity to get back on their feet.”
Witnessing Shianne’s transformation in life has been not only humbling for Josh, but really eye-opening. “It has provided me with profound evidence of how important the foundational building blocks of housing, food, safety and love are for a person’s development in life.” Josh added, “These things were a given for me growing up. These building blocks are critical in a child’s journey to a healthy self-esteem and self-actualization. Financial support years ago to MICAH House was a conduit that helped lead Shianne to a place in which she could make that journey.”
"I'm not sure where I would be today
withouT resources like MICAH House."
