Press Release “Boilerplate” Summary Information

Marian House was founded in 1982 as a joint project of the Sisters of Mercy and the School Sisters of Notre Dame in response to the dire circumstances that befell women at the Baltimore City Women’s Detention Center. Two sisters and a lay volunteer noticed that it was difficult, if not impossible, for many of the women being released from jail to rebuild their lives as housing, employment and support were hard to come by. Thus, they came together and founded Marian House to fill these voids and reduce recidivism rates.

Since its founding, Marian House has become known as a leading organization providing high quality rehabilitative services to women coming out of the prison system. Over the past 39 years, Marian House has served over 3,700 women and has continuously modified its program to achieve strong, lasting results.
