Resident security is an important part of our environment. ONLY RESIDENTS have keys to access the building. Relatives of residents are never to use the "flat" entry key under any circumstances. RESIDENTS ARE NOT TO OPEN the lobby door or let anyone (not here to visit them) enter the Marshall House building. When visitors have a scheduled appointment or drop by for a visit, they must use the telephone in the lobby. Visitors must pick up the phone, dial the pound sign (#), and then dial 100. The phone will ring in the office. After the office staff knows who you are and why you are here, you may enter the building.

According to HUD regulations, the Marshall House residents must be allowed to have pets. Residents that have pets will be given a copy of the Marshall House pet policy. Staff will by happy to answer any questions about it.
