Mission Statement

To seek and develop appropriate avenues to resolve the homeless crisis by fostering independence and empowerment.

Description

MIPH was founded in 1987 to increase local services and resources for homeless persons. MIPH has been heavily involved in the evolution of homeless services in the Middlesex County area for over two decades. As a grassroots group pushing for expanded homeless services, we brought together mainstream public and private agencies through our efforts to advocate for the homeless. We introduced the concept of transitional housing for families to our area.

Since its inception, MIPH has operated a variety of programs. We currently operate two transitional supported housing programs in Edison, NJ: Amandla Crossing (since 1991) for homeless women and their children, and Imani Park (since 1994) for homeless individuals and families where one member is living with HIV/AIDS.

An additional program was developed in 2001 in collaboration with Elijah's Promise Soup Kitchen, and the volunteer support from local houses of worship. This program, "The ClothesLine" provides free clothing to the poor and needy in our community by having an old school bus travel to various sites within the county thereby being accessible to those most in need.

Our newest program (since 2007), Irayna Court, is a permanent supported housing program for young women ages 18-21 who are aging-out of the child welfare system.
