“Marian Homes offer the dual benefits of a home setting for intellectually disabled men and women and a respite for the parents of these men and women. The homes provide a domestic setting in which care-giving can be provided, offering the individual an environment of positive Christian living. The parents of these individuals are frequently aging and exhausted by the challenges placed in their hands, and the outpouring of gratitude from them knowing their children are well taken care of is in itself most rewarding to me as a Board member. It is a privilege to be able to serve as a Board member of Marian Homes, Inc.”
