“Marian Homes provides housing in a neighborhood setting for persons with intellectual disabilities who otherwise would have to live in state institutions. Their lives are very different in a Marian Homes house, with burdens of institutional living lifted, outlooks brightened, and hopefulness and dignity enabled; and this has life changing positive effects on not only the residents but also on their loving families. We are working toward establishing a third house, for the need is great. As Catholics we know that Christ wants us to be “Men and Women for Others”; and it is truly a privilege for me to have the opportunity to serve on the Board and help in bettering the lives of the deserving people who suffer from these disabilities.”
