The Intake Process
To apply to live at Maggie’s Place, a mom must call our intake line 602-246-3724 and speak to our intake specialist. The intake line is answered Monday-Wednesday and Fridays 9AM -1PM. Spots are opened daily at 9am when available. If you are calling and you receive a recording, please leave a message as calls are returned in the order in which they are received.
The intake process begins with a meeting at The Family Success Center where we walk the mom through a packet of interview questions. We ask that she bring an ID and proof of pregnancy to the intake meeting. If the mom is a good fit for our program, we will schedule a second meeting before she moves in.
The intake process can range from one day to a few weeks. If a mom is in need of immediate emergency housing in Arizona, please call Arizona Community Resources at 2-1-1. If outside of Arizona, here is a list of resources in other states.
What is it like to live in a Maggie's Place home?
Maggie’s Place homes are in neighborhoods. Living at Maggie’s Place is like being part of a family; you will be surrounded by people that love you, support you, and will always want the best for you and your family! While moms are pregnant, they frequently share a room with another pregnant mom and as she nears her delivery date, she may move into a single bedroom with a crib, changing table and other items she will need for her baby.
“I came here with only a few pieces of clothing and now I have everything I need for myself and for my son. I got a chance at life again and the inspiration I needed.”
“As time passed, I couldn’t believe that I was actually here. It was God’s way of opening a new path for me. I can do good with my life with the support of Maggie’s Place.”
“I’m learning how to be independent, but also, that it is okay to ask for help. Maggie’s Place helped me learn to love myself and make better decisions, not only for myself but also for my kids.”
“I was afraid to parent by myself. Living at The Mary House showed me that I could do it.”
“There’s help for you. I live there. It’s clean, it’s peaceful, no one judges you. The only thing is you have to call. If you have nobody, you’ll have somebody.”
“Maggie’s Place is my biggest support. They opened their doors to a stranger. I think about all the support, encouragement, and unconditional love I received here. I’m not alone in the struggles I’m experiencing in life.”
