A home for our neighbors
Micah Ecumenical Ministries has been prayerfully laying the foundation for the Jeremiah Community since the very beginning of our work, whether we knew it at the time or not.
Micah's work, to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God, alongside our homeless neighbors, has grown to take many forms since our beginning in 2005. We were formed by the downtown churches as a way to meet the basic needs of our homeless neighbors on the street, giving out tents and sleeping bags, providing a place to shower and pick up mail, and serving meals where all were welcome.
Since then, we've expanded the ways we touch our neighbor's lives, adding an income development program, a permanent housing program, connections to community resources for mental health and substance abuse recovery, a Respite House for homeless neighbors with medical needs, and a blossoming Street Church ecumenical worshipping community.
Now is the time for us to grow farther, and build a different way to touch the lives of our homeless friends, Our Jeremiah Community will be truly a community of support, where the most vulnerable of our neighbors can live permanently, surrounded by the fellowship of their peers and relationships of nurturing support.
To read about our vision, our inspiration, and the stories of the neighbors who have taught us so much about what they long for, explore our Jeremiah Community website.
As we progress in our vision towards making Jeremiah Community a reality, you can help us in our work by donating. Donations made here are earmarked for our Jeremiah Community as we undertake the work of building a house where all are welcome.
Give today and join us in our call to build a life-sharing community where our neighbors can live affordably, have purpose, and find meaningful relationships.
