WHAT THEY DO:
Maggie’s Place supports pregnant and parenting women and their children who need a safe and welcoming community to provide support and services to help them become self-sufficient. There are now four maternity and two transitional homes in Arizona. There, women and children are offered social connections and opportunities to learn skills, including job readiness.

Pregnancy at a young age often interrupts educational pursuits and early employment experiences. Programs at Maggie’s Place are in place to prepare these young mothers to live independently, and to build stability in their family relationships. Further, a child development and enrichment aspect of the program aims to provide skill-building programming to support kindergarten readiness.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Volunteer
Help in the homes by cooking a meal, coordinating a home improvement project, planning a presentation for the mothers or by providing babysitting.

You can volunteer your assistance at one of several special events and fundraisers that are held throughout the year such as the Miracle of Motherhood event, Race for Maggie’s Place or at the annual Christmas party.

Maggie’s Place has a thrift store in Phoenix, called Maggie’s Thrift. Workers are needed for three-to-four-hour shifts.

Donate
Offer a one-time monetary gift or sign up for ongoing monthly support.

Direct your Arizona Charitable Tax Credit to Maggie’s Place.

Provide items from their “needs list.”

Donate your gently used items to the thrift store or organize a donation drive.
