Molly’s House is the dream project of a young girl named Molly Sharkey. Molly was twelve years old when she was diagnosed with chronic myelocytic leukemia. In the next six years Molly and her family traveled the country to find treatment for her rare type of leukemia. In some cities they were lucky to find a Ronald McDonald House where the family could stay and be close to Molly in the hospital. In other cities there was nowhere convenient for the family to stay.



This experience prompted Molly’s dream of building a house in her home town, Stuart, Florida, and make it available to any family who had a loved one being treated for critical care at Martin Medical Center. Molly died in May of 1992 at age 18, but left behind her journal filled with her ideas.  Since her death, family and friends have raised funds to build Molly’s dream house. In April of 1995 a piece of property was purchased at 430 S.E. Osceola Street in Stuart on which to build Molly’s dream.  Since 1996, Molly’s House has provided a warm and caring environment for patients and families in a medical crisis. For over 20 years, Molly’s House has provided a home away from home to almost 20,000 people while they or a loved one were receiving medical treatment. Our Adopt a Family program subsidizes families who are unable to make a donation toward their accommodations. Molly’s House is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for our guests. We are staffed by volunteers and a night manager staff, a housekeeper, an operations manager, and a CEO.
