Mary's Home Web Announcement

A MINISTRY OF HEALING

Joseph & Mary’s Home is Northeast Ohio’s first and only medical respite – a warm, safe environment where each person can recuperate and move on to permanent housing. We offer medically-fragile adults experiencing homelessness support to heal, connect with services and community, and begin the next steps in their journey.

“Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the LORD delivers him; the LORD protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies. The LORD sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.”
– Psalm 41:1-3

Healing Hearts & Minds

Joseph & Mary’s Home provides medical respite filling a service gap between hospital and shelter. We serve people experiencing homelessness who are ready to be discharged from a hospital but too frail to recover on the streets or in shelters. The goal of respite care is to stabilize homeless patients’ medical conditions so they can transition safely to self care.

Transforming Lives

Once residents leave Joseph & Mary’s Home, they can stay connected and continue to receive support through a robust alumni program that includes hundreds of graduates from over the years. Joseph & Mary’s Home encourages alumni to stay connected through intensive follow-up via in-home visits, telephone calls, mail and other forms of continuous contact. Constant connection with alumni ensures effective long-term impact.

Inspiring Action

You can help heal lives! Your financial and in-kind gifts to Joseph & Mary’s Home will help adults without resources heal and recover. A contribution of any amount will help provide safe shelter, nourishing meals, nursing care, transportation to medical appointments, and a wide range of social services and supportive programming tailored to the unique needs of each resident.

Staff Spotlight: Terry Green - Resident Support Associate

Known around Joseph & Mary’s Home as “by the book Green,” Terry Green has been a resident support associate for nearly four years. He helps ensure there is coverage 24/7/365 and works on different nights the second shift (4:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.) and third shift (12:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.). As a recovering alcoholic having reached 30 years of sobriety, Terry said he views working with residents as “giving back.”

The Journey: Giving Gardens

For years, the garden behind Joseph’s Home has provided residents with a quiet oasis to help them relax and continue their healing journey. It is filled with flowers, plants, trees, sculptures and places to sit, and has been built and maintained by dedicated volunteers. The garden has been so important to Joseph’s Home residents, it inspired the creation of a similar outdoor space at Mary’s Home. Thanks to a generous donation from the Sullivan family, the Thomas C. and Sandra S. Sullivan Memorial Garden was built in the summer.
