The mission of Maggie’s Place is two-fold. First, Maggie’s Place provides for the immediate physical and emotional needs of our guests; such as shelter, food, clothing, and support. Second, Maggie’s Place assists in connecting our guests to the appropriate agencies and resources including prenatal care, health insurance, low-cost housing, education programs, and counseling assistance.
Maggie's Place has a unique staffing model in which moms and staff share a home together and we hope that the love that is experienced within our community life is transformational for all who encounter it.
During a woman’s stay at Maggie’s Place, she is challenged to set and achieve goals. Short term goals usually include counseling, health insurance, prenatal care, and connection to government assistance programs. Long range goals include educational opportunities, employment, appropriate childcare arrangements, and budgeting and savings, and independence.
Maggie's Place flows out of the Christian responsibility to recognize the innate beauty of motherhood and the dignity of every person. Our philosophy is founded on Catholic social teaching and our ability to love is rooted in a relationship with God, the source of all love.
