3 About Maggie s Place Mission Maggie s Place is a community that provides houses of hospitality and ongoing support to help pregnant and parenting women in need reach their goals, and welcomes them into a community filled with love and dignity. Maggie s Place provides for the immediate physical and emotional needs of its guests including shelter, food, clothing and a supportive community, and establishes a safe environment for them to live in while they develop the skills they need to live independently. In addition, Maggie's Place connects the mothers to the appropriate agencies and resources including prenatal care, health insurance, low cost housing, and education programs. History Maggie's Place began in 2000 as a grassroots effort when five young women made a commitment to live together in community and create a home to welcome others. As recent college graduates, these young women placed their plans on hold in order create a place that could help other women through a difficult and vulnerable period in their lives. The first Phoenix based Maggie s Place home, The Magdalene House, opened on Mother s Day in Over the last decade, this spirit of caring for our community s women and children grew, and today: Maggie's Place is based in Phoenix, AZ and has three homes of hospitality (soon to be four) serving the greater Phoenix area, and one in Cleveland, Ohio. Between the four homes, Maggie s Place can accommodate up to 30 women and their infants at any given time. On an annual basis, Maggie s Place welcomes approximately 90 women. Over 650 women have benefited from the Maggie's Place community homes since the organization s inception over 13 years ago. Maggie s Place collaborates with over 20 community and government organizations to provide resources and assistance to house guests in both Arizona and Ohio. Each year, Maggie s Place provides approximately 600 women with referral information and shares excess baby and maternity supplies with local crisis pregnancy centers for distribution to their clients. Each Christmas, Maggie s Place hosts a large party and brings together the community to provide gifts for over 400 moms and their children (145 alumnae and current families). Maggie s Place hosts two signature events The Miracle of Motherhood event and A Race for Maggie s Place, which raise tens of thousands of dollars for the organization and brings together over a thousand attendees each year.

4 Programs One community, many homes Each home is part of the Maggie s Place community, welcoming pregnant women at any point in their pregnancy into a supportive environment. Often in difficult and complicated situations, the backgrounds of the mothers that come to Maggie s Place typically include previous drug use, rape, abusive relationships, little understanding of self worth, no employment experience, limited education, bad relationships with family members, poor support networks, or mental illness. With a focus on the present, not the past, Maggie s Place helps each woman on her individual journey through the process of healing and towards creating a future of stability and hope for herself and for her child. Alumnae Outreach Support for the success of each mom continues through the Alumnae Outreach Program, where Maggie s Place provides assistance through job leads, scholarships, emergency loans and bus passes, computer and internet access, job and life skills training, and frequent community events. As of May 2013, Maggie s Place has an alumnae family of over 550 women and their children. Maggie s Place newest project, the Mom s Outreach and Training Center, is under renovation with a target completion of late 2013 and will offer further support through computer stations, a library, a child friendly space for children and a meeting space for further training opportunities. Maggie s Thrift In addition to its maternity homes, Maggie s Place operates a social enterprise store called Maggie s Thrift. Founded in September 2011, this downtown Phoenix boutique offers gently used furniture and higher quality items. All proceeds support Maggie s Place. Maggie s Thrift also facilitates a job training program for current and alumnae moms to receive customer service training and retail experience. Maggie s Thrift is located at 1517 E. McDowell Rd. in Phoenix, AZ. Visit for more details. Model Maggie s Place uses an innovative method for living out its mission, which is a highly effective concept that has increased quality of experience for both the staff members and moms, as well as cost effectiveness in operating the homes. Pregnancy, by design, is meant to be experienced in the context of family and in this way, the homes offer a dynamic and vibrant family life. Within the model, staff members live in the homes full time with the moms. This creates an environment that is like a family, and has proven to be effective in smooth operations of the homes, as well as the ongoing relationships with the mothers after they leave. Maggie s Place believes this intentional community and home environment allows for deep and lasting transformation in the moms.

5 In addition to meeting the individual prenatal and postnatal needs of the mothers under its care, Maggie s Place also provides the following: Nurturing and stable home environment and nutritious food Maternity and infant supplies Weekly, one on one therapeutic counseling and bi weekly group counseling through Women of Worth Bus passes and assistance with transportation Informal mentoring from other new mothers Support, encouragement, and accountability by full time, live in MissionCorps; mothers are held accountable for engaging in 40 hours of productivity time weekly, which can include working or job searching, schooling or volunteering A savings program in which women must save 70% of any income they receive while living at Maggie's Place Life skills courses on topics such as childbirth, healthy nutrition, budgeting, communication, and child rearing Referrals to community agencies and programs including WIC, AHCCCS, parenting classes, Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous, adoption counseling, job training, and low cost housing Access to education programs including a scholarship program, high school equivalency, community colleges, and vocational training through referrals\ Knowledge of State programs including health insurance, day care subsidies, food stamps, child support, and cash assistance Informal modeling of healthy family life including resolving conflict, facilitating decisions for the common good, upholding expectations and consequences as needed, and celebrating goals achieved Four units of transitional housing in an adjunct apartment complex, La Casa de la Madre. Located on the same property as The Magdalene House, the units serve as transitional housing for 4 mothers with infants. To be eligible for the apartments, moms must be able to make a $200 payment per month, which is deposited into their savings. This support continues as moms leave the homes and enter into the Alumnae Outreach Program, where Maggie s Place promotes empowerment of women through ongoing practical and emotional support to help them escape the cycle of poverty. The Mom s Outreach and Training center will deepen the level of service Maggie s Place provides for all of its mothers by offering additional and farther reaching resources for them to engage in. In addition, the center will serve as a hub for the Maggie s Place community life, providing space for the organization s administrative offices and other activities including child s play, picnics, photo shoots, and all community gatherings.
