The Micah Day Center provides a variety of services to our low-income and homeless guests. Guests are able to take showers and have laundry done. They can use our computers, our phone number, and have mail delivered. They can receive clothes and get haircut. And, of course, the Micah Center is always a place of warm welcome and hospitality.
Everyone who comes to us is, first and foremost, the precious child of a loving God.
In addition to meeting the immediate needs of our guests, we provide resources so that they can improve their lives. Guests have access to help with their resumes, employment agencies, housing agencies, help with applications for entitlements, and so on. More than providing emergency assistance, the Micah Center helps improve the long term sustainability of its guests.
Finally, not everyone in need of our help can make it to the Micah Center. We also provide outreach services to people around Biloxi and Gulfport. This includes bus passes, hygiene kits, referrals to other organizations, glasses, propane for camp stoves, vouchers for laundry.
