Houston, Tx, May 22, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Magnificat House will have a dedication of their newest clubhouse, Dona Marie. Residents, donors and the public are invited to honor Al and Dona Marie Clay who were integral in the financial support of the project. A mass at 2:00pm will precede the blessing of the house by Father Kevin Storey, CSB.
“We are thrilled to honor Mr. and Ms. Clay who stepped up and helped us with the final financial obligations to get the clubhouse opened. Currently, we have 40 lifetime members who spend their day in a structured work day environment learning social skills as well as life skills,” said John Reece, Director at Dona Marie. “This dedication is well deserved and we are looking forward to showing the community what we have built and how important it is to so many people.”

Our 16 structures dot the map of Houston. Most are residential homes in near-town neighborhoods. Others target specific needs, such as the popular Loaves & Fishes soup kitchen (easily accessed by downtown street populations and the adjacent areas). Loaves & Fishes is the portal where most of the public learn about Mangificat House. Volunteers serve over 55,000 meals per year from Monday-Saturday.
The St. Joseph House and the Dona Maria Clubhouses, are dedicated to the special needs of the mentally ill while assisting their reintegration into society, where possible. Other houses provide emergency housing for women living on the street, pregnant girls, the homeless, the destitute and the mentally ill, struggling to reenter and sometimes first enter into society. Our Moran Center, which houses an art center and woodshop as well as a retail shop, provide job training opportunities.
