Miriam’s Kitchens’ mission is to end chronic homelessness in the District of Columbia by honoring guests’ dignity, encouraging a sense of belonging and bringing about lasting change. The Social Services Program improves access to behavioral and physical health services for a high-risk population of older adults who are homeless and disabled by serious mental illness, chronic medical problems and substance use disorders.

As part of the implementation of the program, Miriam’s Kitchen invites their guests to the dining room for a meal, where doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers and lawyers are on hand to help them. In addition, the organization provides them a wide range of essential services from clean clothes and toiletries to mail pickup and voice mail.
