Helping hurting people become whole.
Mission Statement: Miracle Hill exists that homeless children and adults receive food and shelter with compassion, hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, and move toward healthy relationships and stability.
Our vision is that each South Carolina Upstate county has adequate and accessible resources for homeless children, women and men. Compassionate services point individuals to Christ and move them toward wholeness, stability, and healthy relationships.
- Miracle Hill is a leader in providing transformative care for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those we serve. Founded in 1937, we are a non-profit organization in the Upstate of South Carolina dedicated to providing extensive services to individuals and families in the form of food, shelter, clothing, counseling, personal development, addiction recovery support, and residential and foster care for children. With the help of generous donors and volunteers, we have become the largest and most comprehensive provider of shelter and food to homeless children and adults in Upstate South Carolina – with nine facility locations and transitional housing throughout Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Pickens counties.
- Miracle Hill plays a leadership and facilitative role in the community by partnering with other local service organizations to provide for the diverse needs of the homeless population.

We are blessed to partner with a host of individuals, regional and national foundations, churches of various denominations, and businesses to help us achieve our mission. The needs are many, and we wouldn’t be able to continue our services without the help of the community.
Miracle Hill’s name developed from a miracle on “The Hill” at Miracle Hill Children’s Home situated at the foot of Table Rock. Volunteer construction workers prayed that the rain would hold off around their site – and it did – on what is now known as Miracle Hill. Today, Miracle Hill Ministries helps provide miracles to others by restoring hope to those who have often lost everything.
It’s been said that “if you can’t find a friend in the world, you can find one here.”
