A Year Later: A Look at N Street Village and Miriam’s House Merger

N Street Village was featured in Monday’s Capital Business section of The Washington Post in an article describing our 2011 merger with Miriam’s House. The merger has been a great success. N Street Village has been able to provide more and better services to homeless women, particularly those living with HIV/AIDS.

“Nearly one year since the vows, two nonprofit darlings of the District — N Street Village and Miriam’s House —are calling their merger a success.

The combination of N Street Village and Miriam’s House, both providing human services to homeless women, has been one of the more high-profile, full-scale mergers in the region since the recession began in 2008.
