Mission Statement

The Marian House mission is to empower women at risk and their children by providing them safe, orderly, loving homes and by delivering the services they need to live healthy, stable and productive lives.

Our vision is to assist homeless, abused and addicted women awaken to their potential - respecting and loving themselves, joining the workforce, building careers, caring consistently for their children, and making a difference in the community.

Description

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. The Marian House mission is to empower women at risk and their children. We carry out our mission by providing safe, orderly, and loving homes for residents and delivering the services they need to live healthy, stable, and productive lives.

A transitional and supportive housing program, Marian House is located in Baltimore City . 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, pre-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 units which we lease from landlords in the surrounding community. During 2006, Marian House provided homes for 105 women and 32 children.

Permanent affordable housing options will significantly increase for our graduates in October2007, when construction of Serenity Place, a 19-unit apartment complex being developed by Marian House and Homes for America , is completed.
