What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

in 1937, Miracle Hill Ministries began as a soup kitchen and small rescue mission in Downtown Greenville, SC. Since then, we have grown with the Upstate--expanding to met the changing and diverse needs of homeless, hungry and destitute people. With the help of our community, we have become the largest and most comprehensive provider of shelter and food to homeless children, women, and men in Upstate South Carolina. With locations in four upstate counties: Greenville, Spartanbnurg, Pickens and Cherokee--Miracle Hill operates adult shelters, a Foster Care Community and thrift stores., We are home to two highly successful, Christ-centered addiction recovery programs: Renewal for women, and Overcomers for men. We also recruit Christian foster families. Last year we housed nearly 600 individuals daily in our various shelters. We currently have over 200 foster families caring for children.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adult Ministries

Our Rescue Missions in Greenville, Spartanburg and Cherokee County along with Shepherd's Gate are venues of emergency shelter and care for people in need all over the Upstate.  Through the Adult Ministries of Miracle Hill, those seeking help in times of desperation are given the chance to receive the assistance required to become productive members of society.

Population(s) Served

When a child is removed from their biological home due to abuse or neglect, they need a stable and loving foster family to care for them. Although foster homes are designed to be temporary, the love and care a child receives while there will last a lifetime.

There’s a dire need for foster families in South Carolina. The numbers are ever-changing, but on any given day there are more than 4,600 children in foster care in our state, yet there are only around 2,800 South Carolina foster families. That means there are around 1,800 children in our state with no place to call home.

There’s no way around it: becoming a licensed foster parent can be a difficult process. Individuals can become licensed through DSS directly, but often choose to go through a private foster care licensing agency, such as Miracle Hill, for the additional support and resources they offer.

Miracle Hill also operates the MIRACLE HILL CHILDREN’S HOME – A FOSTER HOME COMMUNITY
Since 1957, Miracle Hill Children’s Home has been a haven for thousands of children. Knowing that children thrive best in a loving, family environment, we transitioned Miracle Hill Children’s Home from a group care facility to a foster home community in 2020.

This community provides an optimal setting for up to five foster children and three biological children to grow and thrive in each home with loving, Christian families. Our staff provides ongoing support to ensure each child and family is equipped for success.

Population(s) Served

In addition to sharing the hope found in a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, the staffs at both addiction recovery centers (Overcomers for men and Renewal for women) walk clients through a twelve-step program, lasting an intense six months.  Job skill and GED classes, personal counseling, and long-term planning combined with transitional housing are several things provided for every individual fighting for a life without addiction.  Every day, another person is made whole.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Each South Carolina upstate county has adequate and accessible housing options for homeless men, women and children. Compassionate services point individuals to Christ and move them toward wholeness, stability, and healthy critical relationships.

I. Miracle Hill will play a leadership and facilitative role, with local services shaped by and made possible through resources provided by like-minded Christians in the communities served.

II. Miracle Hill will be a catalyst for spiritual, emotional and physical health for those who serve and for those served.

Miracle Hill has been serving the homeless of the Upstate since 1937 and we're the largest provider of homeless services in South Carolina. The directors of our facilities and programs have years of experience in this sector. Along with their wealth of experience, all of our counselors are certified through AACC.

Miracle Hill houses on average 550 homeless men, women and children per night - and even more during cold weather. Serving four counties of the Upstate - Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee and Pickens - we provide a safety net and hope to the hopeless and are generally 91% full. We have 7 shelters - adult emergency care (4), addiction recovery (2), a Foster Care Community - and a children's programs - foster care.

We also advocate for the homeless locally and state-wide and partner with supporting organizations.

Progress - last year:
> of the 122 recent graduates 70% were clean and sober one year out
> 114 foster parents
> 19 GED graduates
> 128 children were reunited with their families
> nearly 64,500 volunteer hours
> diverse funding including strong pool of monthly givers (Lamplighters)
