About Maggie's Place
Maggie’s Place opened in 1994 and is a non-profit organization run by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of a network of community volunteers and parents interested in supporting families with young children.
Maggie’s Place is a joint project between Colchester and Cumberland counties. Both centres have been made possible by a financial contribution from the Community Action Program for Children (CAPC), Public Health Agency of Canada, in agreement with the province of Nova Scotia. We are also funded by the NS Dept. of Community Services, United Way of Colchester and Cumberland County and through the generosity of the local communities.
To strengthen and enhance the health and social development of children and their families, in Cumberland and Colchester Counties. By providing a variety of promotion and prevention services and programs, our aim is to support families through the preconception, prenatal, infant, early childhood and youth periods, with an emphasis on the ages 0-6 early childhood period. We strive to strengthen partnerships and collaborative activities among families, service providers, communities and governments.
