Craig's Life is About to Change

For nearly all of his life, Craig has struggled with mental illness. He's lived with different family members scattered across the country, but he's never had a permanent home.

Craig arrived in Washington, D.C. in 2014 and for over a year he’s been sleeping outside near Farragut Square. A friend told Craig about Miriam’s Kitchen.

Craig is thriving because of the relationships he has developed at Miriam's. He has a new sense of purpose, and finally feels like he belongs. He’s making good choices and thinking about the future.

Miriam's Kitchen is Hiring

Supportive Housing Case Manager

Reports to: Director of Housing

Mission and Values of Miriam’s Kitchen:

Miriam’s Kitchen works to end chronic homelessness in Washington, DC. We advocate for permanent supportive housing as a long-term solution, while meeting short-term needs by providing healthy meals and high-quality social services to the chronically homeless.

Miriam’s Kitchen’s core values:

The D.C. Council will Listen to You

We learned something very important the past several weeks:
 
Our city leaders listen to you.
 
When you asked the Mayor to make homelessness a priority in her budget, she responded with historic investments in homeless services.
 
As the D.C. Council prepares to vote on the budget, there’s one more step we can take.

Our Donors Are Becoming Our Best Advocates

Like a lot of organizations, sometimes we make the mistake of grouping our supporters by category: “we’ve got our volunteers over here, our donors over there, and our advocates right here…”

But that’s not really the case. Over the years, we’ve seen our supporters consistently seek out new ways to help us advance our mission to end chronic homelessness in Washington, D.C.
