Sarah Miller lived a comfortable life as a theater student at New York University. When she began to feel a calling to the poor and homeless of her city, she and her roommate Jillian moved a few miles away to the South Bronx, one of the poorest and most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. Her Beekman Avenue apartment soon became home to afterschool programs for her neighborhood’s children. And before long, A House on Beekman became a full-fledged non-profit organization committed to restoring hope and breaking the cycles of poverty in her city.
