I enjoy my days at the Magdalene House so much. And every day that I am there I am reassured that Maggie’s Place is doing everything possible to propel the lives of our moms and their families to a place of health and success. I am truly proud to be a part of this organization. Mostly proud of our moms and who do the really difficult work in getting their families where they need to be.
