Council Bluffs, IA - TS Bank recently donated $10,000 as part of a three-year capital campaign to MICAH House in order to help families experiencing homelessness.

In 2016, there were 1,290 homeless children who were served in the Omaha-Metro area. MICAH House served 37 percent of those children. MICAH House has been a haven for more than 800 homeless individuals in 2017. Nearly 40 percent of clients served this past year were from Iowa, with a large majority being from the Council Bluffs area.

“MICAH House is grateful for the relationship with TS Bank." Said Jaymes Sime, MICAH House Executive Director. "The support provided from TS Bank allows MICAH House to deliver intensive case management and support services to families and individuals experiencing the crisis of homelessness. MICAH House is dependent on the support of the community to meet the needs of vulnerable adults and children.”

Families and single women who enter MICAH House are provided an array of services including nutritious meals, counseling resources, on-site health clinic, and a trauma-informed BUDDY play program. Additionally, TS Institute, the non-profit arm of TS Banking Group, helps teach monthly financial literacy and budget courses for clients of MICAH House.

“MICAH House prides itself on being more than a shelter. It’s a place where families can turn in times of need. " Said Kelsey Stupfell, TS Banking Group Director of Community Reinvestment. "We are humbled to give back in this way, and help connect families experiencing homelessness with the support services and programs MICAH House provides.”
