The Zechariah House Temporary Suspension of Services to Allow for Programmatic and Staffing Restructure
Since the doors of our first home opened in 2000, Maggie’s Place has continually placed the highest priority on stewarding the financial and physical resources entrusted to us to most effectively care for our community’s pregnant and parenting women in need. It is our deep desire that each of our five Maggie’s Place homes would thrive at their full capacity and potential. Because of our commitment to this, we are taking the opportunity to temporarily suspend services at The Zechariah House, effective January 31st, 2016, for restructuring and renovation. This will allow for our organizational and board leadership to take the necessary and intentional time needed to reassess how to best serve the diverse needs that exist in the greater Cleveland, OH area.
We have taken great care to create a transition plan for staff and a referral process so that pregnant women who continue to need assistance will be able to receive it. Most importantly, with your help, we anticipate reopening our doors as quickly as possible to offer a stronger, more robust program for the moms and babies who will seek hospitality and ongoing support through Maggie’s Place.
