"A 'WHISPER' OF OUR MISSION"

~ Kaki O'Neill, Founder of Malachi House

No home, no family, no friends to provide care. This is a reality for many Clevelanders in life's final journey.  Yet one loving home offers respite for the dying poor: Malachi House.  

Since volunteering in grade school, I recognized how profoundly beautiful they preserved each resident's dignity with emotional, physical and spiritual support during their final months. Last summer, I readily accepted the opportunity to design a marketing piece. Seeking inspiration throughout Malachi House, I noted the delicate red rose leaning against a white, heart-shaped bed pillow. There it remains for 24 hours, marking a beloved resident's passing. This imprinted on my heart the essence of Malachi House.

 

 Each design features roses representing the passing souls ascending to heaven, shaped in a heart, symbolizing the loving home Malachi House provides. 

My goal was for someone to recognize this image amidst their pile of mail, whether a Christmas card or a fundraiser invitation, and take a moment to learn more about Malachi House. If you explore their mission and choose to support them with your time or contributions, then my vision will be complete.
