Stability First – Magdalene House is a shelter for women. It provides housing and supportive services for up to 16 single women. The Magdalene house provides more than just food and shelter; each resident works through an individualized stability plan.
Maggie Bags are beautiful, reversible handbags assembled and sewn by residents of the Magdalene house, their mentors, and community volunteers. Maggie Bags is in need of more community volunteers that can sew or even get a refresher on sewing skills you haven’t used in a while! We are willing to train if you are willing to learn! Even if you can only volunteer a couple hours a week, we can use you!

If you are even just thinking about this, please give us a call at 765-343-6500 or email We look forward to talking to you!
