Marian Homes’ sole mission is to own and maintain group homes in Virginia for persons with intellectual disability.
Our vision is to increase the options for adults with intellectual disabilities to live independently. We work with churches, government bodies, neighborhood associations, individuals and non-profit organizations to expand this dream in Northern Virginia. Marian Homes was created in 1996. We purchased our first home in the Brecon Ridge subdivision of Fairfax in 1998. The home is currently the residence to five women who live in a family environment as productive members of their community. Full-time care of the residents is provided by Chimes Virginia, a well -established provider of services in Virginia. With the resounding success of its first group home and in recognition of the overwhelming need of this type of housing in Northern Virginia, Marian Homes purchased a second home in the Greenbriar subdivision of Fairfax County. Now, with the closure of the Northern Virginia Training Center, there is a short-term need for dozens of more homes to meet the basic needs of this special needs population. Although Marian Homes now has a total of four homes, we are still far from solving the problem of finding homes for the 70 displaced residents of the Northern Virginia Training Center. We continue to raise money to purchase additional homes. A fifth home is now planned with the hope of having it operational by mid -2017.
Marian Homes is administered by a 17 member ALL VOLUNTEER Board of Directors responsible for financial matters, fund-raising and home maintenance. With no salaries, benefits, corporate taxes, utilities, or other normal administrative expenses; your contributions go farther to helping the cause.
