Mary Mac House is DVRC’s transitional house for survivors of intimate partner violence who have begun to stabilize after leaving the abusive relationship and who would benefit from continued shelter services until they secure permanent housing of their own. Residents have the opportunity to stay at Mary Mac House for up to 1 year while they work toward their self-identified goals, self-sufficiency, and independence. Residents are able to participate in case management, housing and employment support, counseling, and advocacy.
The house can hold up to 7 households (single or HOH+1-2 young children).
Mary Mac House is named in honor of Mary A. McIntyre, mother of 5 children and a survivor of a 25-year abusive marriage. She was able to overcome her challenges and barriers after ending her marriage. Mary’s family remembers her as a strong, loving, optimistic, understand, caring, nonjudgmental, and funny woman. Mary’s family is honored to lend her name to our domestic violence transitional house and continues to donate to survivors every year.
