Dear Friends,

Miracle Place  is now  sixteen years old.  As  we reflect on our story we thank God for the many blessings given us throughout these past sixteen years.

Dear to our hearts is the children’s program.  Doing homework, reading, playing games, decorating cookies, shooting hoops, and participating  in the fitness  program  provide the children with  a  safe, warm  and loving environment.  The  care and  concern of the staff  and volunteers gives the children a sense of  belonging.  Lessons in politeness, respect and self-discipline are emphasized each day.   In  July approximately thirty children, ages 5-16, participate in  Academic Olympics.  They focus on Math and English to help them prepare for their return to school.  Our Providence Associate, Kate Hamilton, teaches art each year.  An outing to Lake Freeman for swimming and a picnic is a summer highlight.

A steady and supportive  group from the  beginning has been our Senior Citizen Club.  Miracle Place affords them the  opportunity to share a special  meal once a month, plus a luncheon every Wednesday from Second Helpings. The Seniors enjoy field trips.  Annual events are the Seniors’ holiday dinner at Hollyhock Hill Restaurant as well as a Day of Reflection at Fatima Retreat House.

Summer picnics,  neighborhood gatherings, giving each household lilies at Easter and fruit baskets at Christmas help to create a more cohesive and caring community in  the neighborhood  surrounding Miracle Place.  Our  presence offers a renewed sense of belonging.

If you would like to help us  continue  these programs,  your financial assistance would  be a gift  and support for our ministry.  For additional information, please click on  the headings above for Sponsors or Donations. We thank you for your interest in Miracle Place.
