Maggie's Place Expansion Projects
Maggie’s Place provides safe housing and a nurturing community for homeless pregnant women, empowering them to thrive throughout their lifetime.
The organizational goals of Maggie’s Place are two-fold: to provide for the immediate physical and emotional needs of our moms, including shelter, food, clothing, transportation, and a supportive community; and, to help moms achieve long-term goals by connecting them to community resources such as prenatal care, health insurance, low-cost housing, and educational programs.
To achieve these goals, physical expansion across the organization is required.
The Family Success Center Expansion (30th St & Indian School)
Generously Supported By
We are increasing the physical footprint of the Maggie’s Place Family Success Center (FSC). The FSC is the central hub for all services, staff, and resources for both current and alumni clients of Maggie’s Place. Families who visit the FSC are provided with ongoing support, including; parenting education, child development and enrichment programs, employment assistance, social events and programs for improving family relations. Along with these services, it houses the administrative offices and donation storage space, and is home to our community events, such as our Fall Festival and Holiday Party.
With five maternity homes across the Valley, and increasing complex needs from our nearly 1,200 alumni moms, babies, and families in our continuum of aftercare, the need for increased space for programming, offices and physical donations is a strategic priority for our continued growth.
In 2022, the HomeAid Phoenix Board of Directors selected Maggie’s Place as their nonprofit partner to expand the FSC and the resources and services provided there to pregnant women who are at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness. Builder Captain PWI Residential, with Shea Homes and Woodside Homes have taken on the feat of soliciting local trades to support the efforts through donated labor and construction material with an anticipated completion in spring of 2024.

The Hannah House Expansion (Mesa, AZ)
A separate 5-bedroom “bunkhouse” on the existing property at the Hannah House to provide more safe nights of shelter in a loving community for women who are expecting and experiencing homelessness.
Centrally located in Mesa, The Hannah House offers specialized emergency shelter services and is the only comprehensive service provider targeting this special population in this area. The Hannah House serves approximately 31 women and children each year; however, the need exceeds our current capacity.
The project is being funded by the generosity of a private community member and is well underway. Expected completion and opening is October 2023!

The Gabriel House (Glendale, AZ); Opened August 2023
The Gabriel House, located in the West Valley between 99th and 107th avenues off of Camelback Road opened this past August. “Adding an additional maternity home to house more homeless, pregnant women is a vital next step for Maggie’s Place as we continue to thoughtfully grow to address the need in Maricopa County”, Laura Magruder, Maggie’s Place CEO said. “We currently receive an average of 50 calls a week from pregnant moms seeking shelter that would qualify for our services that we are unable to house due to being at capacity.”
