When young, pregnant women who are homeless enter the doors of Maggie’s Place they are greeted by a comforting smile, encircled in welcoming arms and offered a safe place to live, learn and receive services through their pregnancy and up to a year after the birth.
Maggie’s Place is the only program in Cuyahoga County that provides shelter to pregnant women for more than 90 days. Women and their babies may stay at Maggie’s place – enabling them time to find housing, a job, and a support network.
“Many homes and services available to pregnant women today are primarily concerned with saving a baby from an abortion,” explains Sister Kate Hine, SND, one of the original volunteers at Maggie’s Place. “This certainly is important to us. However, our first priority is the comfort, health and goals of the mother who will nurture the child for many years. We provide services and programs so new moms feel confident in caring for their newborn and capable of finding housing, meaningful employment and achieving self-sufficiency.”
Maggie’s Place is always looking for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit email@example.com or call 440.886.2620
