Description

Overview: Miryam’s House is a Transitional Housing Program for women who are experiencing homelessness, offering a supportive, nurturing environment for women recovering from crises related to homelessness, abuse, addiction and displacement.  Housing is offered for one year with a focus on promoting permanent changes through healing, learning and growth toward self-sufficiency and financial stability. The Miryam’s House residents had to move out while essential electrical and heating renovations were completed. They will be moving back to Miryam’s House towards the end of April.

 What to Expect: an experience of connection and enthusiasm as Miryam’s House prepares to welcome home its displaced residents. Work will include options for lifting and moving as well as creative and/or organizational tasks.

 What to Bring: hand trucks if you have them, gloves if you use them. 

 What to Wear: casual, comfortable clothing, adjusted for weather conditions.

Tasks to be done: Depending on renovation status, either help organize belongings in preparation for the move, or assist in the actual move. Preparation will include creating a welcoming, celebratory environment for their return.
