Maggie’s Place MissionCorps members carry out the heart of our work by serving the moms and babies in our homes.  They commit a year of their lives – and sometimes more – to the mothers and families, to the upkeep of the homes, and to an intentional community life.

We are currently accepting applications for year-long commitments starting in July and August of 2015. On-the-job training will be provided as well as room and board and a $500 monthly stipend.
