Welcome to Mary's Place by the Sea


Mary’s Place by the Sea is a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.  We provide services that complement their medical treatment, including oncology massage, nutrition education, individual counseling, Reiki, guided meditation, expressive writing, and yoga.  Mary’s Place by the Sea is not a medical facility with medical staff.  We offer integrative services to women with cancer and provide rest and support during this challenging time in their lives. They are empowered with knowledge that will aid them on their road to healing.

Since 2009, over 10,000 women with cancer have become "guests" of Mary's Place by the Sea.

Our home is located at 22 Main Avenue in Ocean Grove. Please call 732-455-5344 for more information.

Thank You for your support in 2020


While this has been an extraordinary time in terms of challenges for us at Mary’s Place, we have made amazing strides to fulfill our mission and expand our reach to even more women with cancer amid a global pandemic. Our virtual services program now serves over 500 women each month, while we support a limited number of guests in person in our home. YOUR donations have helped us to provide rest and respite to women with cancer, in a time when they need it most. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for your love and support during these times. With your help, our guests continue to receive all meals, accommodations, and services (both virtual and in person) at no cost. Give the gift of respite and give the gift of joy to a woman with cancer this holiday season.
