Review for Mollys House Inc, Stuart, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

Role:  Volunteer & I work as a hostess and desk clerk here at Molly's House. I answer the phone, give information, make sure guests are as comfortale as possible, andrespect privacy.
