Our co-sponsored ministry Marian House works to provide transitional and permanent housing and support services for homeless woman and their children in Baltimore.

For more than 30 years the School Sisters of Notre Dame and the Sisters of Mercy have supported Marian House as they helped women at the former convent building of St. Bernard’s parish in the Waverly section of Baltimore. In that time the Marian House has seen the need for their services and help grow. Marian House recently broke ground on their newest facility Independence Place, built within the former Blessed Sacrament School.

At the groundbreaking on Friday Jan. 27th Marian House executive director Katie Allston said the idea for Independence Place emerged in 2010 when the ministry set out on a strategic plan to serve more women.

“We were able to double the amount of women we served in permanent housing and realized we wanted another campus,” she said. “And today, all these years later, we are breaking ground on that campus today.”

Independence Place is expected to open its doors in early 2018.
