Welcome from the Executive Director


Dear Friends of Marian House:

Marian House Executive Director Katie Allston

Since its founding 30 years ago, Marian House has become known as the leading organization offering high quality rehabilitative services and housing to homeless women and their children. With your support we are able to provide comprehensive services to many women who have suffered from trauma, physical and sexual abuse, the disease of addiction, and other challenges that left them homeless, unemployed and often separated from their children and families.

We thank you for your generosity and investment in our work. Your support allowed us to serve 141 women and 56 children during this past fiscal year.

The past year has been one of the most exciting in our 30 years of serving women and children.
