Miriams Kitchen

Miriam's Kitchen works to end chronic (long-term) homelessness in Washington DC. From meals to housing, we provide a variety of services to honor the dignity of people experiencing homelessness, create a place of belonging and achieve long term change. Unlike most organizations that provide services directly to people experiencing homelessness in DC, we also work at the system level to address root causes and to bring about change. To end chronic homelessness we must get at the root causes of the issues.We are pleased to be part of a cross-sector partnership that has brought down veteran homelessness 40% and chronic homelessness 22% since 2013. Our mission is to collaborate across sectors to end all chronic homelessness in our nation's capital.
