To provide a sustainable, safe, and therapeutic home that nurtures the well-being and flourishing of each of our formerly homeless residents.
Casa Milagro was founded upon the premise that belonging and knowing oneself as a part of larger whole is one of the most powerful healing forces. In this place, we destigmatize mental health disorders and foster acceptance through shared commitments to the simple realities and necessities of community life.
Too commonly, people are not nurtured in being who we really want to be in the world. Instead we are told that we have to fit other people’s expectations above all else. At Casa Milagro, we shape a resident’s service plan around what the resident wants and envisions for their own life. What do you really want? How can we support you in moving towards that?
Tigris, Chance, Lady, Buddy, Dinero, and Haven-- these are some of the animal friends who hang out in our home, playing by our feet during our community meetings, warming our laps, and bringing joy and unconditional love to Casa Milagro. Casa Milagro recognizes the healing power of animal companions and embraces their presence amongst us.
Casa Milagro has had and still has many artists in residence! We have an art room brimming with materials of all kinds of colors and textures, at the ready for anyone looking to express thoughts and feelings in new forms. In the past, residents have shared their art with the wider community through participating in “Inside Out Santa Fe”-- an annual art show featuring the work of artists living with mental illness.
