Partnering with the Arlington County (Virginia) Department of Health and Human Services to merge our experiences with seniors and people with disabilities and collectively deliver a unique program model, Mary Marshall offers an innovative, community-based facility for seniors with intellectual disabilities and mental illness.

The 52-unit licensed assisted living facility provides homes for low-income people age 55 and older with cognitive, mental health and other special needs who require assistance with activities of daily living. As assisted living programs have been more successful in allowing people with intellectual disabilities to live healthier, more fulfilling lives, these people are also living longer. As they reach old age, they face both their existing disabilities and new issues, such as limited mobility and vision, that come with aging.

At Mary Marshall, all of our services are about helping those we support create whole lives. We are strongly committed to the principles of person-centered planning and individual choice.

We help our residents focus on identifying their own strengths. We help them build upon their own personal assets, interests and desires. And our staff is able to support the health and safety needs of each person, including personal independence and assistance with activities of daily living, as needed. As part of a faith-based organization, Volunteers of America staff are fueled by love and compassion, and an unfailing dedication to the human spirit.
