“I included Bello Machre in my Will because I have seen first-hand the incredible difference they make in peoples’ lives . . . .

In the lives of the residents who live in the Bello Machre group homes; and also in the lives of residents’ families who know their loved ones receive an amazing array of services, supports, and loving care.

Bello Machre is one of Maryland’s true treasures. It’s an organization that enriches the lives of everyone it touches – be they residents, families, volunteers, or donors – one heart at a time.

Thank you Bello Machre for touching my life!”
