2020 Impact Report
Letter from the CEO
2020 a year that prohibited celebrations, including our 20th anniversary. Twenty years, over 1,000 mothers, over 675 babies called Maggie’s Place home. The plans we had to gather and share stories changed to a virtual gathering. Maggie’s Place thrives on human interaction, hugs, tears of joy and sorrow. 2020 prevented us from sharing that outside of our homes. However, within the walls of our homes life went on, we remained open and we celebrated births. The AmeriCorps members and our moms stepped up when we had to close the world out. Volunteers were no longer welcomed into our homes, but they remained there for us, delivering meals via doorbell ditch and sending packages with needed supplies. The community provided in-kind and financial gifts that allowed us to house and feed those most vulnerable.
Our core values of Love, Community, Hospitality and Excellence kept up grounded, focused on the mothers, babies and families that needed us – now more than ever.
Your 2020 investment provided safe housing to 85 mothers, 49 children and 30 babies. The pandemic forced isolation upon us, yet Maggie’s Place provided safe, trauma informed, homes for our moms and families to thrive.
Thank you to the many volunteers who provided meals, kept our toilet paper stocked, called to check on us and kept us in their prayers. Your acts of kindness touched us deeply.
With a grateful heart,
Laura Magruder, M.Ed.
Chief Executive Officer
