  • “So what exactly is Maggie’s Place?” “Well, Maggie’s Place consists of homes of hospitality for women who are pregnant, seeking shelter, and– ” “Wait, so it’s like a shelter?” “Sort of, but it’s much more than that!” Having served at Maggie’s Place for almost a full year now (!!!), I have had to answer these […]

  • Breaking now… The Michael House community fridge. The air conditioning in the ’02 van. The chair out front (Melissa now has a bruise down her arm). Oh wait, I meant to tell you breaking news. Right. Well, all of the above are true, unfortunately, but they’re all going to be fixed too, praise God, except […]

  • I’m going to brag about my contact mom, Lacey. Lacey is 20 years old and has been at Maggie’s Place since August of 2014, when she was just a few months pregnant and unsure of what she wanted to do other than move in to Maggie’s Place. She plans to continue living at the house […]
