As VicePresident of the Hobe Sound Fine Arts League, I have had numerous contacts with Louise Murtaugh and her devoted staff at Molly's house over the past few years. Each season our art league exhibits members' paintings at this wonderful gallery while raising monies for our scholarship fund.
Molly's House serves not just the families of hospitilized patients but the entire Martin Community. There is no other organization like this in our community nor are there more dedicated people.
As a non-profit organization, we are eternally grateful for the contributions of Molly's House.

I am a fairly new volunteer at Molly's House and have been amazed at the amount of people who do utilize a house like this. Before I started here I had no idea. All the volunteers are so warm and helpful. They lend an ear when someone just needs to talk, take phone messages and dispense mail for the guests. It is a very warm and relaxing atmosphere, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the guests can relax on the patio or porch. Guests also don't have to worry about how many days they can or can't stay, as they would at a hotel, because of the cost. It is close to the hospital so there are no transportation worries. I am very impressed with what Molly's House provides for those who are stressed out over a family medical emergency and how everyone there assists in helping the guests to feel comfortable and "at home". The volunteers are all great, but so is Louise Murtaugh, the executive director and Samantha Kayser, public relations. They have all been wonderful in "showing me the ropes" and also assisting the guests.

Molly's House is conveniently located near a local hospital where people come in their time of need offering FREE rooms for families when their family members are enduring and extended stay in the hospital.

Superior management has been their key to success, always operating with
accountability and transparency. Their fundraising professional has developed strategic alliances with organizations and members of the community devolpting donors, friends and members of the community.

Molly's parents are friends of mine and with their love and dediction support the home making sure the spirit of Molly lives in the hearts of all who stay there.

If I would make any changes it would be that no one would ever have the need to need Molly's House services. That will never happen, and we are blessed to have such a well run and lovely facility in our community.

I had the privilege to be chosen for the 2011 Molly's Calendar. As a result, we exhibited our work during the month of December 2010. This was my first time when I came to find out about the great job that Molly's house does for our communiy. We were able to learn about guest of patients at the Martin Memorial Hospital who can stay at Molly's house for a small donnation per night since they can't afford a hotel or any motel nearby .
The volunteers and the staff at Molly's house are outstanding. We were able to sell calendars to the public for $10 each and that was very rewarding since the word got out about Molly's house and its service to our county.
The house is a very warm, cozy and elegant which features three floors with nice bedrooms and kitchen on each floor. The atmosphere is very relax and quiet. I think the people who stay at Molly's house senses the hospitality spirit and great values of Molly's house.

Molly's House is a place where families of people in a medical crisis can come to stay. It is a home away from home. Molly's House was the dream of a young girl with a terminal disease. Molly Sharkey and her family travelled around the country for treatment for her leukemia. Many times there was no place other than a hotel to stay., adding to the familly's expense and difficulties. In Molly's diary after her death, detailed plans for a home for families in need to stay in Stuart were found . Her family and the townsfolk worked together to create a beautiful, welcoming home which is well used today. It has been my experience as a volunteer that Molly's House has been filled to overflowing this winter season. People express gratitude that they receive a warm and welcoming place to stay.

The suggested charge to families is only $20 per night. If a family can't afford even this, it is alright. Molly's House is run only on the contributions made by others.

Guests and their families stay during the medical crisis of their family member. They openly express relief and gratitude that such a place as this is available for them.

I would hope that a firm base of constant funding were available for Molly's House. This home is funded strictly on the basis of contributions.

When little or no hope exists, miracles can occur - especially when the afflicted receive strong support from their families. However, difficulties exist for many family members -- e.g., unavailability and costs of lodging -- especially when family members must come from afar.

Molly's
vision and her house enable families to gather in a family setting and focus their time, energy and efforts on supporting the afflicted in their time of need. The staff and volunteers take many burdens off family members and provide strong support and encouragement.

Molly's House has enabled my older brother, his wife, my wife and myself to focus our time and energy on supporting our youngest brother. Two months ago, there was little hope for his survival. However, he's a fighter and now hope exists. Thank you Molly for your vision. Thank you doners, board members, management, staff, and volunteers for making Molly's vision a reality. It means so much to me and to other clients whom I've met. Praise the Lord for Molly and those who serve her vision.

I met a woman recently who left Molly's House in her estate plans. . . . Molly's House meant so much to her! Her husband was in the hospital and she didn't have transportation to drive back and forth. Every evening she would walk across the parking lot of Martin Memorial to Molly's House. She would open the door and feel immediately at home. She said the staff and volunteers were there for her physcially and emotionally in the most difficult time of her life!

As Molly's sister it is such a joy to see her legacy come to life! Molly is very proud of the support the house provides for this community and I am proud of the volunteers and leadership for caring her legacy on! The house has been full for the past three weeks, having been a misplaced family when Molly was ill I know the gratitude those families feel for the house. Welcome home, to your "home away from home", come in, stay a while, take a load off and be near your loved one in a caring, loving, supportive enviroment. We welcome you!

As an employee of the hospital I have heard families, patients, doctor's and nurses say what an asset Molly's House is to their patients. Our heart surgeon's rely on the house often to support our Top 50 Cardiac Program (Thompson Rueters).

I would eventually expand into St. Lucie County to support the hospital at Tradition Medical Center and the Trauma Center at Lawnwood Regional. I would also add transportation for the patients.

I have been a volunteer at Molly's House since I came to Florida in 2005. I consider Molly's House my most favorite volunteer opportunities.

The people staying at Molly's House tell us over and over that they are extremely grateful to be able to experience the hospitality Molly's House
provides at a time when they are facing a precarious situation within their families. Also, the fact that very often they have the opportunity to communicate with other people in the house who are going through similar situations.

Another comment that is frequently heard is that Molly's House gives them a feeling of a home away from home with so many amenities that are provided for them during their stay. We recently started to offer breakfast in the morning that is so much appreciated by anyone who is rushing out early to see a loved one and very often has very little time to
take care of their own needs.

Over all, we as volunteers, are very proud of the services Molly's House can provide and are happy to be of service as well.
