Volunteers have staffed Mary House since it opened in June of 1989.  They include students, retirees, carpenters, teachers, neighbors and friends.  Located in an old farmhouse in a rural setting, Mary House is in continuing need of repair and upkeep.  Volunteers have painted, roofed, and cleaned and decorated the house, yard, and garden.
