About Micah Ecumenical Ministries

Micah Ecumenical Ministries is excited to join Coldest Night of the Year for the first time!

Micah is a collaboration of churches following Christ to cultivate community and care for neighbors. We envision a just, kind and humble community where all neighbors belong, participate, meet each other’s needs and engage in meaningful relationship. We operate many different ministries to meet our neighbors' needs and walk alongside them, including a Hospitality Center that offers basic needs assistance, an income development program, a housing program, a worshipping community called Street Church, and a Respite House that provides temporary shelter for unhoused neighbors discharging from hospitals.

Why the $59,000 goal this year?

We know it's a big number, but our community can reach it! We estimate $59,000 as a rough amount for the materials to build one of the small homes in our planned Jeremiah Community. How inspiring would it be to see our first Coldest Night of the Year walk raise the equivalent of a home for a chronically homeless neighbor?
