The MICAH House's mission is to create a safe, secure and nurturing environment for families and single women who are experiencing the crisis of homelessness.
The MICAH House is an emergency family homeless shelter serving families and single women. We have 23 rooms with a capacity of 90 individuals. When each guest arrives they are paired with a case manager to work on developing skills such as housing education, budgeting, parenting, and employment. In 2008 The MICAH House provided 14,721 nights of shelter to about 600 people.
