About

AmeriCorps members spend a year or summer living with pregnant and parenting women formerly experiencing homelessness who are now housed in a loving, caring environment at Maggie’s Place in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area.

Using a trauma-informed care approach, AmeriCorps Stability Mentors are on the front lines of the fight to overcome Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and break the relentless cycle of poverty. AmeriCorps members at Maggie’s Place transform lives through hope, love, and a dedication to servant leadership. Americorps members live in the homes alongside moms and teammates sharing meals, doing chores, celebrating accomplishments, and working through hard things together. Members take initiative in a variety of situations that range from a mom going into labor, to roommate conflicts, to showing hospitality to visitors and new community members. They create a safe, welcoming, home-like environment for the moms so moms can focus on achieving their goals. 

Due to the live-in nature of the work, this is a women-only position.
