Now in its 20th year, Milagro House provides education, housing and support services for women and their children who would otherwise be experiencing homelessness. Our vision is to prepare the women and children who come through our doors with the skills they need to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty and move from dependency to self-sufficiency.
Education is the underpinning of the Milagro House program – we believe it is the catalyst for women moving from dependency to independence through meaningful employment at a self-sustaining wage.
Women pursue a GED through the Milagro House Education Center or a post- secondary credential through an accredited trade/technical or college program. Educational attainment is supported by intensive, customized case management, individualized and group counseling, parenting programs, early child development screening and life skills training (e.g. basic financial knowledge, nutrition, and conflict management).
Housing is provided at Milagro House while women are enrolled in our program. By meeting the most basic needs of housing, safety and stability, we allow the women to focus on their own goals while eliminating boundaries and circumstances that often keep women from breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
