CSER 551-001: MIRIAM'S HOUSE
Supervisor: Barbara Martin
(847-1101 or Email)
This is a transitional housing program designed to end the cycle of homelessness. Miriam's House is preventative in nature for the children and rehabilitative for the adults by offering comprehensive social service programs and daily personal encouragement and support. This will be an excellent opportunity for students to participate in a program that meets the needs of homeless women and children in our community. Currently, we have very limited needs for volunteers in our daycare to assist with the children.

The Gateway is a program of Lynchburg Community Action Group, Inc.,  a local non-profit organization providing housing, emergency assistance and education to low-income, disadvantaged and elderly individuals in Central Virginia. The Gateway is a residential substance abuse recovery program for homeless men who are in recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction. Residents are housed for up to two years and receive on-site substance abuse counseling, employment assistance and other supportive services as they learn to make better choices and rebuild their lives. All residents work or volunteer and pay rent, attend a minimum of five 12-step meetings weekly, are breathalyzed nightly and randomly drug screened for accountability. This is excellent training for Ministry, Psychology, Counseling, and Human Services majors. There are many different volunteer opportunities available including working directly with residents. Please contact David Prewitt, Program Manager, at (434)846-3311, Ext. 1, or email me at program@gatewayprogram.com if interested.
