EVIDENCE BASED PROGRAMMING

Maggie’s Place uses a Trauma Informed Care approach to provide foundational building blocks for development, learning, and health throughout a person’s lifetime. 

A recent study of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), found that children who experience trauma have long-term impacts to well-being and functioning. The cycle of violence, generational poverty and abuse, homelessness, substance abuse, incarceration, perpetration and victimization of violence are all related to ACE’s.  Strategies such as identification and assessment, reducing risk and exposure and nurturing resiliency and skill building are effective interventions.

I made the decision to fight for the life inside of me and found myself hesitantly walking through the front door of The Michael House where I could let down my walls in a peaceful, safe, loving environment.
 
I was given so many resources to learn, grow and become aware of myself and was able to lay the foundation for our journey to hope. Maggie’s Place plants seeds of Hope for generations to come.
