Home is what Marilee does best. She has built a safe place that offers shelter, comfort and a permanent place to call "home" for our community's most vulnerable. Marilee began building "homes" with the Crosswalk youth shelter, giving a safe bed to children who had no place to rest their heads. Then she continued her mission by establishing Veteran's housing, the Hope House shelter for women, young adult housing and supported housing for men and women alike.
Marilee solidifies her legacy in a brand new fifty-unit permanent housing building, which the Board fittingly named, "The Marilee."
This building will create "home" for individuals who are homeless and living with disabilities.
The Marilee is state of the art and will have all the amenities, case management and supports on site to assist the residents with ongoing housing stability.
In this beautiful building we will be placing a glass "Legacy Wall" etched with names of Marilee's friends and supporters who wish to honor her three decades of service to others. Because you have been part of her journey, we are inviting you to honor her mission by placing your name on the "Legacy Wall. Funds from Marilee's Legacy Wall will be set aside for critical operations of Volunteers of America's programs that feed, house and provide basic needs.
