Our Mission is to provide short or long term care and guidance to girls, ages four through twenty-one, who cannot live with their families.
Miller Home seeks to provide these services within a supportive, non-institutional environment, which encourages each girl to grow and develop to their highest potential.
When children are removed from their homes out of concern for their safety, they are usually brought to a child welfare services office to await placement. This wait can be a few hours to several days. These children often have nothing with them and are scared, lonely, hungry, and in dirty clothing.
Isaiah 117 provides a comforting home where these children instead can be brought to wait – a place that is safe with friendly and loving volunteers who provide clean clothes, smiles, toys, and snuggly blankets. This space allows children to receive the comfort and care they need while child welfare staff can do the necessary paperwork and identify a good placement.
