Welcome to MICAH House.MICAH House is an emergency family shelter, located in Council Bluffs Iowa and serving all of Southwest Iowa, Sarpy & Douglas Counties. For more than two decades, MICAH House has been a haven for families and individuals who are experiencing a housing crisis and provides the resources and support necessary to assist in their efforts to regain self-sufficiency and reenter the community. The organization has grown from when the first guest was served in 1987 to meeting the needs of over 760 individuals annually, over half of whom are children, through intensive wrap-around services that offer support, education, and respect.
MICAH House is located on the Charles E. Lakin Human Services Campus, which is home to five non-profit agencies including MICAH House, Heartland Family Service, Boys & Girls Club, The American Red Cross and The Salvation Army. By working together, these agencies have been able to provide increased and improved comprehensive services to area residents in need. They have served more people and saved money on operations and maintenance - putting those valuable dollars back into human services programs.
