Mission Statement

Miracle Messages is a nonprofit reunion service for our neighbors experiencing homelessness to reconnect with their loved ones... and with us as their neighbors. We offer a humane way to help end homelessness: reconnect families, shatter stigmas, and empower local residents to get involved. To date, Miracle Messages has reunited 255 families, with an average time disconnected of 15 years, using our mobile app, online and paper-based forms, and 1-800-MISS-YOU hotline. 80% of delivered messages have been positively received, and dozens of reunions have resulted in getting a client off-the-streets, all at a fraction of the cost of other interventions.

Description

Miracle Messages is a nonprofit reunion service for our neighbors experiencing homelessness to reconnect with their loved ones, and with us as their neighbors. Our approach is simple and effective: a person isolated by homelessness records a short video, audio, or written message to a family member or friend, often with the help of a local referral partner, trained outreach volunteer, or formerly homeless ambassador. Then, dozens of "digital detectives" attempt to locate the loved one, deliver the message, and facilitate a reunion. .
