Target demographics: MH is the only long-term transitional living facility for homeless women and children in the Central Virginia area. Our population includes women in substance abuse recovery, women with severe mental health issues, those whom are considered “indigent” (living below the poverty line), have HIV/AIDS, and domestic violence survivors.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Because many of our residents are survivors of domestic violence, we have a limited capacity to use the help of volunteers. Also, because we house children, we must abide by strict state and federal laws to put no child in harms way.

Programs: The organizational program capacity is as follows. Our staffing includes an Executive Director, Clinical Director, Social Worker, Office Manager, Children’s Program Coordinator and relief staff. The Executive Director oversees day to day operations and has her Master of social Work. The Clinical Director is an MSW as well and has been with Miriam’s House for ten years. Both our directors possess vast experience (combined over 30 years worth) in working with individuals in substance abuse recovery, mental illness and domestic violence. Our residents’ social worker is completing her MSW and has four years of experience with substance abuse and mental illness. The Children’s Program Coordinator has her teaching certificate in elementary education.

Mission:
Miriam’s House, designed to end the cycle of homelessness, serves homeless single women or mothers and their children.

Not a shelter, Miriam’s House seeks to be preventative in nature for the children, and rehabilitative for the adults. It is hoped that by offering a comprehensive long-term program, individuals are empowered to live independently.
Results:
Miriam’s House has a 16 year history of successfully providing transitional housing for Lynchburg and the surrounding areas. Our facility has eleven units (2 one bedroom units, 8 two bedroom units and 1 three bedroom unit) with a total of 31 beds. We can house single women and women with up to three children.
