Program Description


"At Michael's House, we identify destitute elderly who have no families or means of support and we are committed to providing them respite from their pain, fear, and hunger in the time that remains in their lives."

“Michael’s House began with ordinary people, good friends of good friends and now, hopefully, you and your friends - tied together only by the shared idea that we could succeed where governments and large organizations have not."
-The Trustees, Volunteers and Benefactors of Michael’s House.

Homeless seniors who often have to resort to begging in order to survive are brought in from sleeping on unsafe streets into a shelter providing comfortable beds and mattresses and provided blankets towels, pajamas and breakfast.

Volunteers run the homeless senior shelter for the aged and there is a staff nurse and a doctor available.

The organization's motto is  'Empowering Each Other To Help the Elderly Poor In The Third World.'

Michael's House also hosts other programs including:

-Adopt A Grandparent Program (The Grannies Project) for grandmothers who have experienced sufferings as a result of the HIV and AIDS and the burden of caring for many grandchildren who are now orphans.

-Farm Program where the elderly raise animals and plant crops on three farms and provide food for themselves and other elderly in their community.

-A residential day care program for elderly.
