In 1987, H.M. Life Opportunity Services began providing housing and supportive services to homeless, single parent families in the Akron area.
Humility of Mary Housing was formed in 1988 to enhance, support and expand the overall housing ministry of the Sisters. In 1995 its name was changed to Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. This became the foundation upon which the Humility of Mary Housing Ministry was established and upon which it continues to grow.
The Humility of Mary Housing mission is to promote and strengthen the self-sufficiency of individuals and families, especially the poor, through advocacy, supportive services and quality housing. It is a mission shared with the Sisters themselves to bring a more abundant life to others.
Since its beginning in 1987, Humility of Mary Housing has grown to where it is now providing housing and supportive services in four northeastern Ohio counties: Lorain, Cuyahoga, Summit and Trumbull. Local communities being served include Wellington, Lorain, Garfield Heights, Northfield Center, Akron, Girard and Youngstown.
