COVID-19 Update: How You Can Help

Margaret’s Village is rooted in a strong tradition of social justice that our founder, Sister Margaret Traxler, practiced, lived, and wove into all aspects of our work. We remain committed to these principles and to the people we serve who represent some of the most vulnerable members of our community – those who are jobless, homeless, and lacking healthcare and many other resources that are critical to surviving a public health crisis.

For those of you looking for ways to help us through this time, we are in need of the following item donations:

  • Cleaning Products:
  • Items to restock our First Aid Kits
  • Paper Products
  • Food Items (especially canned goods)

Donations can be ordered via our Amazon Wishlist.

Thank you to everyone for your support during this time. We hope that you’re all staying safe and healthy.

Margaret’s Village provides transitional housing for homeless women, children, and families, as well as enrichment activities for area seniors.
