Maggie Murphy-Severino Foundation Liaison

Maggie is a Maggie is a Senior Vice-President for Busey Bank. She joined the Homes of Hope family in the early 1990s and felt privileged to help shape the foundational mission, vision, and values of the agency. The first home was built in 1994 and she said it was thrilling to see the dream come to fruition! Her passion for this agency, and others alike, stems from her oldest sister Susie, whose brain damage was a result of encephalitis as an infant. Maggie's parents cared for her in their home until her death at age 19. Their greatest fear was “What would happen to Susie if we could not care for her?” This memory helped Maggie understand the challenges, fears and hopes that families experience who have a child with special needs. She says, "It is an honor to be able to share in the lives of our residents and their families!"

"The parents of children with disabilities had the foresight to be concerned about their child’s care and living arrangements after the parents could no longer care for them. They wanted their child to have the opportunity to live in a home where Christian principles were followed and used to guide the care being provided to their child."
