Inspired By Their Daughter, Notre Dame Coach and Wife Open Home for Adults With Special Needs

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis and his wife, Maura, formally welcomed four women with special needs to a new home built by the charity inspired by their 14-year-old daughter.
"Today is for people like you who we love and we want to take care of," Maura Weis said Monday afternoon at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Hannah and Friends Farm, a more than 30-acre residential community near South Bend.
The women moved into the home on Friday, and four men are scheduled to move into a house next door in the coming months. The organization's aim is to provide housing and care for children and adults with specials needs.
The couple's daughter, Hannah, has been affected by developmental disorders.
