What We Do

21 Years of Serving Moms

Maggie’s Place is 501(c)3 organization committed to serving mothers – upholding dignity, providing support for those experiencing barriers to thriving, and building an inclusive, trauma-informed community. Being founded in the spirit of Catholic social teaching, our core values of love, hospitality, community, and excellence derive from these principles. As we have grown over the years, we have remained true to our core values and mission, while proactively seeking to be a community that welcomes and integrates moms, staff and AmeriCorps members from all faith traditions and walks of life around our common purpose.

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. Maggie’s Place provides families support through the following programs:
