HIV infection is at an all-time high. The nation's capital faces one of the highest rates of infection in the world. AIDS continues to devastate some of America's most vulnerable populations, mainly women and children. That is why your contribution is so meaningful and important to us!


Not only do we welcome and appreciate financial contributions, we have a "Wish List" of meaningful items that will make a difference in the daily lives of the women at Miriams's House.


- New or Gently Used Kitchen Chairs (we need 16 in total, and some that are easy to wipe down and keep clean!)

- Giant Food Gift Cards (for the purchase of supplies to make sobriety anniversary and birthday cakes!)

- Staples Gift Cards (for office supplies and other necessities at the house)

- Emergency Preparedness Supplies (toilet paper, water, pre-packaged food items, etc.)

- New Resident "Welcome Packages" (with sheets, linens, etc.)


By supporting Miriam's House, you are helping to ensure that otherwise homeless women in D.C. who are living with AIDS:

- have the opportunity to live in one home throughout the various changes presented by this devastating illness - even up to and including death
- are given individual, compassionate and professional health and service care designed to meet them where they are instead of placing them in a preconceived, programmatic box that will not advance their lives
 - can live in a safe and encouraging environment, where they can focus on their recovery and success


On behalf of the women of Miriam's House, we thank you for making a generous investment in our cause!
