  • Maggie’s Place is all about the love.  Moms come to our homes for many reasons, but are always rooted in love for their child.  Volunteers, donors and the local community support our mission out of love, charity and generosity.  As MissionCorps, we spend our time and energy simply because we love the moms and babies […]

  • Do you ever wonder what it’s like to be pregnant?  Well, I can’t speak from experience, but I do happen to know quite a few women who can shed some light on being pregnant—and often do.
