Mary House founders Bill and Sharon Murphy started this type of shelter and related services based on what they saw and learned after several years of local community service (where they met, married, and started their own family). They believed that a homeless family must be rooted in a safe and nurturing environment before they can begin the process of healing their emotional scars and rebuilding their economic base. Whether working through outreach services or housing programs, Mary House staff, while meeting immediate needs, builds a relationship with the participants that generates mutual respect, understanding, and healthy dialogue.
