All Disabilities Motivational Institute - Open
Puna District Big Island, Hawaii,
(primary or secondary location)
Marty’s House is a 2000+ square foot home on 1-acre that serves as a respite house, accessible retreat center, institute and mini intentional community. As the culmination of his life’s work, Marty Mimmack, M.Ed. has opened a facility that welcomes persons with disabilities and/or their personal assistants, family members and other professionals to come, stay, contribute, exchange, visit, teach, learn and enjoy East Hawaii. Filled with inspiration, motivation and innovative solutions, Marty’s House provides a wide range of low-cost or no-cost services, products and programs that support independent living principles and goals while creating solutions that keep people out of long-term care facilities.
Statement of Purpose
Organized to motivate and care for the disabled, seniors, professionals and the community by teaching courses and providing services related to independent/assisted-living, healthcare, adaptive products, physical, transportation, economic, recreational, social and other activities of daily living.
Assisted or Independent Living
Using Co-housing and Intentional Communities models Marty’s House promotes and provides assisted/independent housing and retreat facilities for the disabled and seniors. We believe intentional living is a good way to address the increasing need for “in-home” support. These, often ‘semi-healthcare,’ needs are expanding at an alarming rate. Marty’s House seeks gifts and grants to establish a cooperative village community where responsible, compassionate people demonstrate caring for one another in the areas of food, housing, social activities and transportation in an effort to elevate consciousness and assist government in planning for the future.
