We recently let go of our former Blessing Food Bags @ Saint Miriam, an award winning outreach to the homeless and food insecure in our area, in order to bring about a stronger program to impact homelessness more deeply called Human First @ Saint Miriam.
This program extends primarily to greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and suburbs, and provides housing opportunities on our main campus, as well as nutritional and hygiene support to those living on the streets. We also open our lower parking lot area for our CarSafe Program in order to allow persons living in their car to have a safe place, along with support. Finally, we care for pets of those living on the streets and also feminine hygiene products and care for those who are transgender, as well.
One of the most wonderful aspects of our program is that we ask those who volunteer to take the our services into the streets to also engage with the receiving individual and bring their humanity to the surface. As our byline states clearly, our program is a “comprehensive approach to homelessness, placing the dignity of the human person first.”
Please support our efforts by purchasing supplies, offering your financial support, or volunteering to help us build our support bags or distribute supplies or inventory!
