Text Box: Our Mission:
Provide a secure and permanent home for our core members
Make known the gifts of people who have intellectual disabilities, revealed through mutually transforming relationships
Foster an environment in community that responds to the changing needs of our members in the atmosphere of a family
Engage in our diverse cultures, working together toward a more human society
Be a positive influence in our neighborhood and community.

Update: Establishing the first home.

 

In June members of the board of directors met with members of our community to plan for our first home and share a simple meal.  There was much joy and enthusiasm as we discussed how to move forward with our mission.  We discussed where to locate our first home and decided that anywhere in the area, including surrounding counties will be included in our search.

 

What does this mean?

 

Our search is not limited to the confines of the city of Columbus, but will be wherever the opportunity presents itself within the area.  Long term plans are for a numbers of houses throughout the area serving the needs of the community.  Keeping in mind that the house will need to be at least 4+ bedrooms to provide a home for four core members and the potential for live-in assistants our plans are:

 

1. We buy or receive a house that meets our needs and adheres to licensing regulations.

2. We buy or receive land and build our first house.

3. Obtain a building that can be renovated to meet our needs.

We welcome your insights on available property:

                                                                            

                                                                    

Text Box: HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP

If you, or someone you know, has a property that will meet our needs, please let  us know.

 

We would also gratefully receive a home or property gifted to Maggie’s House.  A home gifted to Maggie’s House would mean a lasting legacy of love.  This home would be a permanent monument of  acceptance and belonging for adults with developmental disabilities.
