  • When I came to Maggie’s Place back in January this year, there was one mom who had already been here since July of 2015. Her son was born in August. I became her “contact person” in February when we were paired together for the remainder of her stay at Maggie’s Place. Jacquelyn and I share […]

  • I have always been surrounded by family, especially my parents and four siblings. I would have never imagined that I could learn so much about family while being 28 hours away from them during my service at Maggie’s Place.   My Own Family- Selfless First, I found out how supportive my family was when my […]
