Miriam House

Located in Norwalk, Miriam House is a transitional housing program that offers safe and stable housing to homeless women and their children.  Catholic Charities staff help residents identify issues that have contributed to their homelessness.  Clients receive resources and guidance to rebuild their lives and to develop the skills necessary to regain self-sufficiency and to secure stable, independent housing.

The Meaning Behind the Name Miriam House

The name, Miriam House, reflects the importance of Miriam, sister of Moses, who stood by him from his birth and assisted him throughout her long and dedicated life.

Women seek support at the Miriam House for a variety of reasons. Regardless of how our residents are led to Miriam House, they all share the common need for support and resources while they rebuild their lives and prepare for successful transition to permanent housing.
