Who We Serve
Milagro House provides services to women and their children who would otherwise be experiencing homelessness. Women come to us from a variety of circumstances with a common goal of taking steps toward a future of independence and self-sufficiency. Milagro House is not an emergency shelter. Rather, we are an educational program with a focus on utilizing education as a catalyst to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Women interested in being part of the Milagro House program must go through an application and interview process. The first step is to complete an application and return it to Milagro House.

During the application and interview process, we will be learning more about each woman, her specific needs, her goals and about her children. She will also complete educational assessment tests to determine where she is on her educational journey.
Milagro House is a large home located at the corner of West Chestnut and College Avenue in the west end of town. Each family has their own room and they share living spaces, kitchens and bathrooms. There are also laundry facilities on-site as well as play spaces indoors and out for the kids.
