Los Angeles CaliforniaThe Basics

Founded in 1999 in Los Angeles, California, by Richard and Lisa Rogg, The Promises Foundation aims to help alcoholics and addicts who couldn’t afford a private drug rehab, but want help. The husband and wife team opened Miriam’s House in 2007, with the intent of providing a safe transitional living home for financially challenged women and their children.

Accommodations and Amenities

Miriam’s House was once a convent. The house lodges 15 women, not including their children. Accommodations vary but the furnished rooms include twin beds with a trundle drawer for storage. The children also have beds appropriate to their age. The rooms include dressers and lamps. The house includes a living room with comfortable couches, coffee table and bookshelves stocked with books. The private backyard includes a patio table, chairs and grass. Special gatherings, including a Mother’s Day event, are held there.

At Miriam’s House, food is provided. Residents take turns preparing meals in a fully equipped kitchen. A typical lunch includes grilled cheese sandwiches, green beans, hot dogs, carrot sticks or potato chips. Dinner includes fresh salad, veggies, bread and meat. Fresh fruit, including bananas, are always on hand. Clothing, books and toys are provided for women and their children.

Rules and Regulations

Prior to admission, residents must have 30 days of being clean and sober. The program is a year in length. Requirements include obtaining and actively working with a sponsor, attending three outside 12-step meetings and performing household chores.

Miriam’s House provides one 12-step meeting every night between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm. Since this meeting is mandatory, the curfew is 6 pm Sundays through Thursdays. On Fridays and Saturdays, the curfew is 11 pm. Other services include life coaching, educational training, parenting classes and workshops to help the women learn independence and get back on their feet. Clients are subject to random drug and alcohol screenings.

Extras

The workshops are held on the premises and include guests from Planned Parenthood, the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and local mental health care providers. HUD provides tutorials and information to help women get low-income housing once they leave Miriam’s House.

Miriam’s House is a member of the Sober Living Network, Los Angeles County Sober Living Coalition.

In Summary

Miriam’s House is designed for women who are on the brink of losing their children and want to work on rebuilding their lives. This humble home offers more than what meets the eye. The women learn to build bonds with each other and with their children, and learn to empower themselves while taking a spiritual approach to their recovery. Interested clients should call or email in advance, since Miriam’s House does have a waiting list.
