Presbyterian Senior Living (PSL) is pleased to partner with Milagro House of Lancaster and the Lancaster County Council of Churches to provide used vehicles to selected program participants. In the past, PSL residents or their family members have offered to donate vehicles for use at our communities. On occasion, we have gratefully accepted some of these generous offers; but depending on the PSL community and its needs, it hasn’t always been appropriate for the campus to put them to use. Now, through this new partnership, the vehicle can be donated through PSL to benefit the Milagro House participants.
Discover the difference between For-Profit and Non-Profit Senior Living
The Lancaster County Council of Churches will receive the cars, handle the paperwork and then make them available to the appropriate Milagro House program participants. This groundbreaking program, called Wheels to Work, transforms lives by providing reliable, used cars to pre-qualified, low-wage families while providing the maximum tax deductions to the car donors. Since the program’s inception three years ago, the Council has sold over 70 cars to those in need.
The mission of Milagro House is committed to providing education, housing and counseling for women and their children experiencing homelessness. Women come to Milagro House for many reasons. Some are recovering from addiction, some are suffering with mental illness, and most of them have been abused. Some suffer with low self-esteem, insufficient education, inadequate parenting skills or poor selfdiscipline. All of them are mothers and all of them are homeless.
The program, started in 1998, offers women and their children the support they need to achieve success. In addition to housing, the primary focus is education—this is what makes their program unique. Milagro House is a program that makes a difference in our community as well as in the lives of the women and children.
