Miracle House provides temporary housing, free meals, and volunteer support to patients and caregivers traveling to New York City for critical medical treatment.
Today, Miracle House operates five three-bedroom apartments located in midtown Manhattan that serves over 1,000 guests each year.
Our apartments have all the essential elements patients and caregivers require for a home away from home – a private bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a pantry stocked with nutritious food, well-maintained beds, telephones, high-speed Internet access and a common area where patients can bond with one another.
Equally essential to patient and caregiver well being is our beloved Meal Program. We offer breakfast every weekday; dinner on Tuesday through Thursday; and brunch on Saturday.
Miracle House provides more than 2,500 meals each year. These communal gatherings at a New York diner provide comfort food and heal hearts, as families can share their experiences and support one another around a table.
New Yorkers are the heart of the organization. More than 100 volunteers interact with clients; offering support and advocacy, hosting meals and referring patients and caregivers to additional resources.
Miracle House’s suggested base fee is $50 per night which is offered on a sliding scale based on need. If a client cannot afford the fee, they will not be turned away.
Miracle House also partners with other organizations to more effectively serve the needs of our guests. We have longstanding relationships with hospitals and other agencies, fostering a high caliber of service. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Angel Flights and God’s Love We Deliver are just a few of the outstanding non-profits we work with.
