Marian House provides a safe, sober and loving environment that challenges women to respect and love themselves, confront emotional and socio-economic issues, and transition to stable and independent lives. They offer a model of integrated care in which clients' mental health and substance abuse treatment is delivered in tandem and within a sheltered setting.
Marian House is a joint project of the Sisters of Mercy and the School Sisters of Notre Dame in response to the dire circumstances for women discharged from the Baltimore City Women's Detention Center. Marian House was established to fill the void of a safe place women to go after incarceration, reduce recidivism rates and help women to achieve their goals. Marian House has served over 1,500 women.
The Baltimore Women's Giving Circle grant will go toward general operations.
