Molly's House is a local non=profit that gives hospitality to family members of those needing the services of Martin Memorial Hospital. It was a dream of a local girl who died of cancer at a very young age. Her parents made sure her dream was fulfilled with a lot of community support in building and furnishing the facility. They continue to participate in the organization in many ways. The Executive Director makes sure to provide a home-like atmosphere in the three story facility to make the families stay comfortable. The importance of having family visit patients daily is an important aspect of early recovery after procedures or surgery.

Molly's House is a hospitality house in the Victorian decor that welcomes families to stay while a loved one is in the hospital nearby. It offers a comfort to guests in their time of need and concern to be close by in its peaceful, quiet surroundings. A definite gift to our community build together by many, many volunteers and donors in honor of a young women who lost her life to cancer. To my knowledge, today it is run solely by volunteers with only one paid director, a testment to a true non-profit.

Molly's House is one of the shining examples of what a community can do when it comes together. Molly had a dream of a warm, comforting place for families to be near an ill relative. Molly wrote in her diary while she was suffering with Leukemia and the community built her house. Countless people volunteered and everything that was needed to build the massive 3 story home was donated. Every year there are fundraisers that the community is asked to donate everything from cash to tooth paste. The art gallery is a wonderful event that everyone should visit. It is so alive with passion and color, something Molly would have really loved. The experience of realizing Molly's dream by being in the house is one that is sure to touch your heart strings and make you realize the awesome power of the human spirit. Molly's house is a true testament of how generous and wonderful a community can be.

Molly's House serves as a bright beacon for families who could not afford to be with their critically ill member. It is abeautiful facility located within walking distance of Martin Memorial Hospital. Molly's invests in the local art community by decorating its walls with fine art every month and serving as a gallery for these outstanding artists at the same time serving critical patient's families. The gallery helps cheer up the families who sometimes spend months while their loved ones are recoveringat the hospital. The staff is outstanding.

Molly's House is a positive asset to Martin County. What a wonderful, homey place to stay when you have a child in need of medical assistance. Worrying about financially handling a place to stay near the hospital should be the least of your worries. The warmth of Molly's House is a welcome refuge for distressed parents-a home away from home.

In addition, Molly's House hosts art exhibitions monthly, which not only lets the public view the work or local artists, but also enables them to become familiar with the facility and the resources offered.

I have lived in this community for over 20 years and remember when Molly's House was just an inspiration by a courageous young girl who wanted to help others. The dream come to fruition has helped hundreds of families just as I believe Molly had envisioned. It makes me proud to live in a community where this facility was able to be built and is sustained by the community and the hard work and dedication of volunteers. I have recommended Molly's House to families in need and they are very grateful.

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.

I have been incredibly impressed with the dedication, the drive, and the professionalism of the staff and volunteers of Molly's House. In addition, the founders' family and their trusted advisors have implemented a truly inspiring facility to help families in their time of urgent need.
Recently my own family had a serious health challenge in a remote city and several of us went to provide physical presence and all manner of support. Unfortunately, there was not such a facility as Molly's House in this city, and the experience of being a family member to a dangerously ill loved one was made worse by the lack thereof.
Stuart is truly blessed to have Molly's House and the staff that keeps it working. Please help provide them with the funding needed to keep performing their noble work and hospitality.

I first met Molly when she was a patient at MMH and I was impressed with her concern for others. She would speak of the need for a facility to be near the hospital for families to stay that would enable them to spend more time with their loved one. Over time it has become a reality. Thank you, Molly, for your dream and foresight.

Molly's House has opened its doors to the art community and welcomed us with the oportuniy to display our art to the community. It has increased community awareness to fulfill their mission to house families whose loved ones must be in the hospital which is located accross the street.
Everyone has worked together to help our community support the arts. As a local artist I appreciate the opportunity to share my work in this beautiful setting.

I too am an artist that showed at one of the excellant shows at
Molly's House.
This has given exposure to many many people as to the quality of
Molly's House, and opened eyes and hearts to the crying need for
such a place.
How many of us have had loved ones in hospitals when we feel so
isolated from friends and family? Molly's house serves as a
tender loving home to those who perhaps become ill while visiting
our state. Also those who live a distance from the hospital, are
welcome to stay in order to be closer to the hospital facilitiies.

It is a soft place to land and be comforted to those experiencing
chemo treatments across the street...some too weak to travel and
some who are completely alone with no family members near by.

We are blessed to have people in our area, such as the ones who
started Molly's House, and who themselves have gone through
the desperate sorrow of loosing a child with cancer, and now
reach out compassionately to others with equal suffering.

Molly's House is wonderful and as everyone now realizes, it is
a struggle to keep everything together finacinally this day and age.
We do need all the help with this special place.

AS A MEMBER OF THE MARTIN COUNTY ARTS ASSOCIATION, I WAS INVITED TO SHOW 2 PAINTINGS AT MOLLY'S HOUSE IN DECEMBER 2010. MOLLY'S HOUSE WAS A WARM AND WELCOMING PLACE TO DISPLAY ART FOR THE PUBLIC AND 'RESIDENTS' TO ENJOY.

I serve on the Board of the Art Associates of Martin County and was an artist exhibiting in the December, 2010 show. The staff at Molly's House was professional and caring. During the Open House for the artists, we were treated to the finest hospitality. I had the opportunity to meet Molly's father who lovingly shared Molly's vision for the home before her death. It was heartwarming to hear the history of how the dream became a reality with the help of so many from the local community: contractors, elected officials, children and volunteers. Molly's House is always open to weary hearts. May we always be blessed by this much needed facility.

I am President of the Art Associates of Martin County. In December 2010 we had the opportunity to exhibit our art in the Gallery at Molly's House. The workers and volunteer staff couldn't be more wonderful and willingly assisted with everything we needed. In addition they let us know about the way Molly's House operates, showed us the rooms and in general were extremely accomodating. It was a double bonus to have our exhibit in such beautiful surroundings and be able to also learn about how beneficial Molly's House is to the public. Molly's House is truly a gem.

Molly's House is needed in every community. Without Molly's House some families would not be able to afford to stay by their ill family members in the hospital for care. It is a loving and beautiful home and an asset to our community.

Molly's House is a quaint, comfortable house providing a place to stay for families of loved ones who are in the hospital either short or long term. This three-story home is almost directly across the way from Martin Memorial's north hospital. Everyone associated with Molly's House is passionate about keeping Molly's dream alive as well as providing a place for families to be near one another during a difficult medical time. The story behind Molly's House is simply moving and the people involved who have donated their time and money can never be thanked enough for such a priceless project to have blossomed so beautifully.

13 years ago I had a son born with severe birth defects. At that time he had to spend 6 weeks in the hospital and he underwent several surgeries and procedures. It was a terrible time of traveling and constant worry. The hospital where we were did not have an outside support system. It would have been a blessing to have had the warm, loving support system that is offered by Molly's House. 11 years ago we moved to Stuart and over the years I have watched Molly's House generously support families in tragic situations, giving people the comfort of home and easing many burdens while they wait for the recovery of loved ones. I know how grateful those must feel that have received the benefits of Molly's House. I know what it would have meant to me had it been available in the area we lived. Molly's House is a true blessing to our community.
