  • My life changed a few years ago when I came to really know Jesus. I grew up knowing about Him but I didn’t really know Him until He found me and changed my heart. The most recent change is how the Lord led me to Maggie’s Place. As a single mom myself, I have always […]

  • From the moment you were conceived, I loved you! I didn’t know what to do, but for you, I would climb any mountain to give you a better life. I carried you in my belly for 9 months. My body changed, nights became restless and I felt every kick and somersault. It wasn’t easy but […]

  • Dear Maggie’s Place Moms, Did you know that you are the strongest group of women I know? I have watched so many of you come to Maggie’s Place, afraid and unsure, and slowly grow in confidence and trust. Some of you have lost children to miscarriage.

To date, we have homes named for St. Mary Magdalene, St. Elizabeth, St. Michael, St. Zachariah and St. Hannah. We ask them to intercede for us when we pray as a community every day.

  • During a contact meeting with a mom, we had the convo card* that expressed the meaning of a REAL MAN. The fact that the mom had picked this particular card was ironic because she had just finished telling me why she wanted nothing to do with men. She giggled. I laughed. And we both became […]

  • My first contact mom had a very healthy, robust baby, who was also probably the angriest baby I’ve ever met. His mom went to school to get her CNA certification, and so the Corps ended up babysitting him at odd times to fill in for other sitters while she was at school. Some good things […]

  • “A community which is just an explosion of heroism is not a true community. True community implies a way of life, a way of living and seeing reality; it implies above all fidelity of the daily round. And this is made of simple things—getting meals, using and washing dishes and using them again, going to […]

  • The 1999 comedy film, Baby Geniuses, with Sylvester and his infant cohorts gleefully outwitting the sinister Doctors Kinder and Heep, is an all-time favorite at The Elizabeth House. Unlike Dan Bobbin, we cannot for the most part understand baby babble, and try as we might, we can’t remember that time long ago before we “crossed […]
