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 July and August of 2015, as well as applications for summer commitments between May 1st and August 1st. On-the-job training will be provided as well as room and board and a $500 monthly stipend. Year-long MissionCorps may be eligible to participate in a CVN CompassionCorps AmeriCorps program. AmeriCorps status is subject to funding and availability. For questions or more information, contact Amanda Ayala, the Director of MissionCorps at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 602-262-5555.
