For nearly half a century, Marillac House has provided desperately needed social and educational programs to the people of East Garfield Park and North Lawndale neighborhoods on Chicago's impoverished west side. Marillac House is administered by the Daughters of Charity, the largest community of religious women in the world. The Sisters who live and work at Marillac House serve in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac, founders of the Daughters of Charity. With a staff of more than 100, primarily from the west side, Marillac House cares for more than 1,110 people each day -- children, families, the elderly, the homeless, the poor. Needed at this time are caps, scarves, mittens, afghans, and baby sets. Actually, we can use almost anything.
