Miriam’s Kitchen began as a soup kitchen in 1983 and has grown to be one of the few direct service agencies that also works to improve DC’s homeless services system. Its mission is to end chronic homelessness in Washington, DC by honoring guests’ dignity and encouraging a sense of belonging and bringing about lasting change.

Miriam’s Kitchen’s Social Services Program reduces barriers to medical and behavioral healthcare for District of Columbia residents who are experiencing prolonged homelessness and related complex health issues. As part of the implementation of the program, the organization invites their guests to the dining room for a meal and provides them a wide range of essential services from clean clothes and toiletries to mail pickup and voice mail.
