Maggie’s Place serves pregnant women that are in need of a loving and supportive community. Women may move in at any point in their pregnancy and stay up to 6 months post-pregnancy.
To qualify for a Maggie’s Place home, a mother must be:
- Age 18 or older
- Free from drugs or alcohol
- Free from diagnosed Severe Mental Illness
- Free from immediate physical danger
- Without other children in her immediate care
The Intake Process
To apply to live at Maggie’s Place, a mom must contact the homes directly. Call the homes on Tuesday mornings at 9am to see if an opening is available. We do not keep a waiting list so the first person to call on Tuesday morning will be the first person considered for the opening.
The intake process begins with an off-site meeting where we walk the mom through a packet of interview questions and treat her to a meal. We ask that she bring a proof of pregnancy to the intake meeting. If the mom is a good fit for our program, we will schedule a second meeting before she moves in.
The intake process can range from one day to a few weeks. If a mom is in need of immediate emergency housing, please call Maggie’s Place; we are able to refer her to other safe housing programs.
What is it like to live in a Maggie’s Place home?
Maggie’s Place homes are in neighborhoods. Living at Maggie’s Place is like being part of a family; you will be surrounded by people that love you, support you, and will always want the best for you and your family! While moms are pregnant, they frequently share a room with another pregnant mom and as she nears her delivery date, she may move into a single bedroom with a crib, changing table and other items she will need for her baby.
