A History of Compassion
Founded by Mother Franziska Lechner
The founder of the Daughters of Divine Charity had a dream—to provide safe housing for women away from home. She established the first home in Vienna, Austria, thus inspiring her Daughters to carry on this mission worldwide.
With Akron’s Daughters of Divine Charity and through the foresight and courage of Sister Leonora Vurnik, Leonora Hall was opened in 1946, providing “a home away from home” for young women.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality semi-independent, supportive living services in a safe, caring, compassionate and home-like atmosphere. Services are always “person-centered” and tailored to meet each resident’s needs.
Today the Sisters continue to provide a safe and caring home for women of all faiths.
