When you support Milagro House, you help change lives!
Your Support Matters
Milagro House has supported the Lancaster community for 25 years with the generosity of many individuals, corporations and foundations. Your donation will help us continue our work to support the women we serve as they learn, grow and work to build a brighter future
for themselves and their children.
The support of volunteers is essential to the programming we are able to provide and the success of the women we serve. There are a variety of opportunities available for those interested in dedicating their time and talents to make a difference.
- Yard work
- Household upkeep and repairs
- Clerical Tasks
- Career, workforce or life skills training
- Hold a fundraiser to benefit Milagro House
- Assist with fundraising events
- Collect needed supplies for Milagro House
We provide the mothers and children who live at Milagro House with basic necessities such as toiletries, cleaning supplies and diapers and wipes. Milagro House is a bustling place! With nine families making this their home, it is easy to go through supplies quickly. Your donation of tangible goods helps offset the cost of providing these supplies.
*Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to accept donations for clothing or furniture. We have a wonderful partnership with CommunityAid, they donate a portion of the sale of items donated in our support back to Milagro House. All you need to do is attach our partner number – 40011 – to the bag/box/container you are donating your items in. Additionally, if you have furniture you would like to donate, we partner with two wonderful organizations for furniture items when needed – Off the Streets and PA Furniture Mission. We highly recommend supporting these organizations!
With storage at a minimum, we are only able to take in-kind donations of items we are in immediate need of. Please visit our Amazon Wishlists to find and order needed items. For questions or to schedule a donation time call Nadia at 717-509-1401 ext. 102.
If you are interested in bringing an in-kind donation to Milagro House in person, please call 717-509-1401 Ext. 102 to schedule a drop off date.
Hours: M – F 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Planned giving provides many options to make sizable gifts that will maximize your impact on the mission of a nonprofit – like Milagro House. Gifts made through planned giving vehicles are customized to meet the goals and wishes of the donor while providing significant financial benefits to the nonprofit. A planned gift can be monetary, but can also include property and other assets such as stocks. Leave a gift to Milagro House in your will or trust and help to sustain our mission over the long term and leave a legacy that extends into the lives of every woman and child served.
