Mary House is a community based organization that provides transitional housing services, shelter and support programs to homeless and struggling immigrant families in DC and Maryland. The philosophy at Mary House has always been to help others as we ourselves would want to be helped, while providing a safe haven that allows families to reclaim their dignity. As such, we are the only major organization that specifically seeks to house extended family members together. Mary House is funded entirely by donations and grants, and we accomplish our service and mission through the generosity of people like you. Your donation will help provide In-house advocates, subsidized apartments, clothing and food to ensure that everyone has access to the services and resources they need. Your partnership helps so many recover from trauma and rebuild their lives.
