I recently became involved with Madonna Place. The home visiting model is unique and offers a variety of options to strengthen families. There is also a drop in family support center with a variety of programs and services. There is a culture that respects families and helps them to be healthy and prevents child abuse. It is a very nurturing, supportive environment to help families to improve their lives.

Non-Profit.... It means that there isn’t a huge surplus of money coming into an organization. However the real "Profit" of Madonna Place, is Human evolution. For mothers and fathers who are struggling with life, this organization provides; Help, Relief, Support, Nurturing, Kindness, Love and most of all.... Hope. Some agencies just do "what is required" by their grants and funding sources. Madonna Place goes far and beyond the scope of their contracts to sincerely bring much needed help and crucial life assistance to (voiceless) people who desperately need it. Madonna Place is constantly looking to improve their own surrounding community as well as reach out to most of Connecticut. I am pleasantly surprised and filled with tremendous joy every day I work here with the magnificently important labor that they do. I have been in the social work field for over 12 years now and I have only come across a handful of agencies that truly care for and appreciate their clients and the people in their community as much as they do. It has only been a few months since I’ve been here, but I have worked with Madonna Place over the years and it has always been an extraordinarily productive delight. Some social help is given out of contracts and agreements. The truly miraculous help that Madonna Place provides is out of compassion, desire and Love. I hope that this organization continues to thrive and do the amazing work they have been doing from the moment they opened their doors. Social work is not about getting “junkies” off the street or “hiding” homeless people away in some dark, lonely shelter. It’s about giving people the hope and desire to improve their lives, thereby improving all of society. The real social work is done out of kindness and love for our fellow Human Beings. Cheers to Madonna Place… Cheers indeed.

I have been part of the Madonna Place team since December 2013. Prior to working here, I have always admired Madonna Place and what the agency stood for. Now that I am a part of the Madonna Place team, I couldn't be happier. I am impressed by all the hardworking and truly dedicated staff that we have here. I can truly say that the staff here go above and beyond the call of duty to be there and support the people within our community.

my husband and I took the parenting class with Jessica and Lorraina, theyre so helpful, this is very educational and we made some people mad at us by sharing stuff for safety we learned from them lol. They fed us dinner every class which was totally unexpected, and we bonded with a few of our classmates, it is very helpful to share your experiences and help out other people, and recieve help yourselves instead of sitting there like you were forced to go, I recommend this to everyone even grandparents thanx Jessica and Lorraina!

I have been on the Madonna Place Board for two years. I am continually impressed by the staff and leaderships' drive to improve the services they provide to at risk families. Whether it be strategic planning, training, marketing, results based accountability, or facilities refinement, I have witnessed Madonna Place taking all necessary steps to be here to improve families and protect children of eastern Connecticut .

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My wife and I became first-time parents in 2006. We signed up for follow-up with Madonna Place staff through its co-op with W.W. Backus Hospital. After bringing our daughter home, we received calls from the staff to make sure we were okay and to answer any of our questions. Luckily we both have supportive families that were there to help us and did not really need to use Madonna Place's services; however, I know we would have found the support invaluable if we had to have been doing it alone.

My association with Madonna Place began as a donor in 2004 and grew as I became a board member in 2005, where I still serve today. Through these several years, I have seen a passionate and dedicated management team and staff consistently delivering on the agency mission to strengthen families, promote health and to prevent child abuse and neglect in our community. Successful Madonna Place programs include the Fatherhood Initiative dedicated to helping fathers become more involved in their children’s lives, not only financially, but also emotionally and Families First, focused on parent education for first time parents to provide skills to avoid abusive or neglectful situations.
These and other Madonna Place offerings have provided outcome value for our community since 1987 and should continue into the future as long as there is a need.

Madonna Place provides the community with a much needed service. Their various programs and services work together to support and strengthen the family unit. The Fatherhood program provides much needed support and development of key skills to be a good dad. The nurturing family connections provides a support mechanism for first time parents. As a volunteer of the program above I got to experience how this service helped to provide a support line to parents of various social and economic demographics. In addition this organization helps fill some basic needs such as diapers and formula to families in need.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The strengthening in the family units that they support. Young fathers learning the role they play in the family unit, first time parents getting the needed support and answers to help them cope with the new experience of parenting. The look of gratitude of families in need when they receive things such as diapers, clothing, and formula.

Based on all of the experiences I have had with community agencies and board participation this agency is the extremely well run. With the current economic environment and the continuous cuts in funding makes it very difficult for agencies to run let alone grow. Their such a need in our community if I could make a change it would be to see an increase in the funding allowing the agency to grow.

I have been a board member since 2003 and have seen first hand the benefits provided to our community by the services provided by the Madonna Place programs. The Fatherhood Initiative has assisted countless dads become engaged & strengthen their parenting skills; Families First assists first time parents through the challenging times while fostering the vital bond between parent and child; and the Drop in Center provides a safe place to socialize, obtain information and provide respite care for children, just to name a few of the important programs. I would highly recommend this Agency to any family in need of their services.

I became a board member at Madonna Place, in January of 2010, after learning about the difference this organization makes in the lives of children, and parents in our community. As a Champion of children, an educator, and an individual who believes in making a difference in my community, I am impressed with the impact this organization has on the lives of real people.

I have had the privilage of volunteering and bringing Mad Science programs to some of the children's programs here at Madoona Place. As a board member I have had the opportunity to see that the people working for this organization are not just showing up for work, but are driven by a passion, and a purpose. I am honored to be a part of this organization, and believe that it is organizations like this that are the foundation of change in our society.
