Get Involved with MIRCI

Support MIRCI financially

Each and every year MIRCI relies on generous donors to help us provide a way forward for youth and adults who are navigating the emotional uncertainty of mental illness and are experiencing or at risk for homelessness.


We’re launching a new, monthly giving program,
 A Way Forwardand we invite you to participate and be a part of the solution. Will you join us in our effort by supporting MIRCI with a monthly gift of ANY amount? Here are some ways your generosity provides a way forward:

  • $25 monthly, provides medication for an individual treating schizophrenia
  • $50 monthly, provides sheets, pillows and a comforter for individuals exiting homelessness
  • $125 monthly, provides housing starter kits with 20 essential kitchen, bath and laundry items 

Volunteer Opportunities

  • SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES – We welcome organizations (clubs, churches, businesses, etc) in assisting us with various service projects such as:  Spring yard clean-up, flower planting, repairs/painting.

  • DONATION DRIVE – Clothing drives and other special collection events are some of the best, and most fun, ways to collect donations for MIRCI. You can also check out our Amazon Wishlist for items we need today!

  • COMMITTEE MEMBERS – Throughout the year we have several committees that work with the Board to implement the annual and long-term goals of the organization.  We are always looking for individuals that are willing to commit time to working on various aspects of the organization such as:  Fund Raising, Finance, and Marketing.
