Mission Statement

Bello Machre means Home of My Heart in Gaelic. We provide homes and support to children, teens, adults, and seniors with developmental disabilities. More importantly, we enrich the lives of those we serve through loving care, guidance, and opportunity so that they can live life to its fullest. Many of the people we serve live in our 57 community homes located throughout Central Maryland. Bello Machre also provides help and support to hundreds of children, adults, and their families in their own homes. The Hertha and Jesse Admas Ray of Hope Program offers assistance with expenses such as specialized summer camp, physical therapy, and adaptive equipment. Trained and caring staff also provides respite care on a case by case basis during family hospitalizations, emergencies, and vacations—24-hours a day – seven days a week. Bello Machre is there to help with whatever is needed, empowering people with developmental disabilities to live life to its fullest.
