About Rose-Mary Center
In 1922, Mr. Caesar A. Grasselli, President of Grasselli Chemical
Works, deeded his family’s summer home to the Catholic Diocese of
Cleveland for a home for children with physical and mental disabilities.
Under Catholic Charities Diocese of Cleveland, the administrative and
daily operating responsibilities of the Rose-Mary Center began as a
ministry of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary. The Rose-Mary Center
gets its name from the Blessed Virgin and the beautiful rose gardens
that Caesar Grasselli’s wife, Johanna, had created behind the mansion.
In 1967, we revised our mission to serve children with intellectual
and developmental disabilities. In 1989, with the opening of our first
adult group home, we expanded operations to serve all ages from
childhood through end of life. We now operate multiple group homes
through Cuyahoga County.
Today, we proudly serve over 100 individuals through our residential
services, adult day programs, school, vocational center, summer camp,
and respite programs.
Rose-Mary Center today is the product of a long list of volunteers,
professionals, trustees, organizations, religious and clergy whose
skill, commitment and energy have become a reputable part of RMC’s

Center provides services to all people regardless of race, sex,
