Which Industry Will Help End Chronic Homelessness? All of Them!

There's No Limit to the Way Companies Can Help Our Guests

Every day, our corporate partners advance our work to end chronic homelessness in Washington, D.C.  
These partnerships often start with a volunteer shift in the kitchen.  But they lead to other important contributions that support the long term goals of securing housing for each of our guests.
 

Four Ways You Can Help Our Guests

A Secret Weapon in the Mission to End Chronic Homelessness: the Paint Brush!


At Miriam’s Kitchen, we often talk about guiding our guests towards change in their lives. Yet change isn’t just important for the people we serve - it’s central to our approach in ending chronic homelessness.

We know that to be successful, we must constantly evaluate and adapt our programs and think creatively, outside the bounds of standard practice. From our meals program, to our Advocacy efforts, to our work to enlist Mission Possible partners from D.C.’s business community, we are always challenging ourselves to make our programs better than ever.

A Day in the Life of a Case Manager

Every August we have to say good bye to our service corps members as they complete their year of service to MK. This year’s group provided us with a peek into their busy lives and shared some of the lessons they learned along the way.

A Day at MK

This July 4th, You Can Guide Veterans Home


As July 4th approaches, I am reminded of the many homeless guests at Miriam’s Kitchen who helped fight for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Bill, a Vietnam War veteran, immediately comes to mind. Though Bill came to Miriam’s Kitchen for our healthy meals, he is most thankful for our help getting him into supportive housing.

New Faces in the Dining Room

It sure does seem like there are a lot of new people in blue shirts in these days....

Well, that's because it’s June. And if it's summer, that means there is a new group helping out here at MK!

Each year, students, volunteers and other summer helpers arrive to support our guests. We benefit not only from their energy and enthusiasm, but also from the fresh perspectives that help us improve our work.
