Mission Fund: This fund will receive undesignated donations to support the mission of the organization and the goals of the programs. It may also be used to support the acquisition of property, renovation, new construction and other property-related activities that ensure the availability of safe, affordable, accessible housing for the people we serve.

Sustainability Fund: The Marrakech Sustainability Fund, a Board-Designated Quasi Endowment managed by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, was formed to secure the fiscal sustainability of the organization in the future and to decrease the reliance on State-issued contracts and funding.

Arline and Frank McCarthy Fund: This fund was established to meet the emergency, unfunded and/or underfunded program needs of the organization and/or the individuals served. This may include providing revolving loans for consumers to pay security deposits or purchase necessary furniture; emergency funding for individuals needing shelter, fuel, or food; or the purchase of equipment or supplies for underfunded programs.


"Marrakech has helped me with school and getting my license. There is always someone to talk to, to answer a question. Marrakech is a place where you can learn to be independent"

“Without the help of Marrakech’s support and staff I do not believe our families would have been able to create a wonderful, happy, warm, well-run home that our two sons live in today.

We are very grateful for all the hard work  Marrakech has done to help make this home a reality. Creating a safe home and independent life for our sons with the help of Marrakech is a dream we never thought we could dream.”

 "I try to keep up with my art. I am looking for different ways to get my art out there. Marrakech is a place where you can get more independence. They help you with all aspects of life. They help you get to and pass your goals. At Marrakech, there are so many activities available to you- just mention what you like and it will be there for you."
