Marian House is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
Marian House, a joint project of the Sisters of Mercy and the School Sisters of Notre Dame, first opened its doors to homeless women in April 1982. Marian House is a holistic, healing community for women and their families who are in need of housing and support services. We provide a safe, loving environment that challenges women to respect and love themselves, confront emotional and socio-economic barriers, and build stable and productive lives.
Marian House is located in the Better Waverly neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland. We serve homeless women who have suffered poverty, addiction, abuse, mental illness or incarceration. Our services include meals, transportation, personal counseling, life skills training, employment assistance, GED education, drug/alcohol screening, financial guidance, a savings program, scholarship aid, support in achieving family reunification, and access to affordable permanent housing.
Residents remain in our transitional program for up to 24 months, and can then move into permanent housing which we lease from landlords in the surrounding community or into our own permanent affordable housing building - Serenity Place - a 19-unit apartment complex that was developed by Marian House and Homes for America.
Marian House strives to transform our society by unlocking the potential found within the women we serve. We have served more than 1,000 women in the past 28 years.
