Miriam's Kitchen's Forces are Stronger than Hurricane Sandy

This week our homeless guests were among the most vulnerable facing Hurricane Sandy. More than 40% of our guests find shelter on the streets each night. That means the high winds, pouring rain, falling trees, extreme temperatures and risk of hypothermia were just a few of the hardships our guests experienced.

When the weather takes a turn, guests can usually rely on museums and libraries to shelter them. But with Metro, government buildings and most businesses closed, our guests had few options to stay safe.
