People in crisis turn to Netcare to receive compassionate care and resources. Netcare's Miles House operates 24/7 and clients can stay for up to 16 days to work on coping skills, managing symptoms, working on sobriety, and interacting with others. In 2018, 180 clients stayed at Miles House and this year even more are expected.
Miles House is in an older neighborhood with aging electrical infrastructure. As a result, power outages are common, especially during storms. Power outages are a true challenge for the staff and clients at Miles House. When power is lost, staff cannot connect to Netcare resources, including phone, client data, and emergency systems.
Your support of this Better Together campaign directly impacted the wellbeing, safety, and security of clients and staff at Miles House. By purchasing and installing a new generator, powered by natural gas, this critical resource for our community can weather any storm!
