Miller Community House provides emergency shelter to Portage County adults and children in a housing crisis, while also providing support, advocacy and referrals to encourage self-sufficiency and movement towards permanent housing.

Program Description

Miller Community House provides emergency shelter and supportive services to men, women and children experiencing a housing crisis. Essential to our mission is improving the quality of life for our residents by providing a 30-day shelter that includes advocacy, information and referrals to area resources and collaborative agencies.
 
A Program Coordinator and Senior Housing Specialist along with part-time Housing Specialists currently staff Miller Community House. The residents have the option of meeting with the Program Coordinator or the Senior Housing Specialist on a weekly basis to establish and implement a plan that includes housing, education, job searching, counseling, financial planning and other goals. Housing is the primary goal for all residents due to limitations on the length of stay. The Housing Specialists are available to answer the support line, admit new residents, and provide a supportive environment to the homeless families staying at the shelter. Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
