“We are excited that the new Maggie’s House will be in close proximity to Dallas 24 Hour Club. Our partnership to help women struggling with alcoholism will only grow stronger, and it will give our female population new opportunities to help others and get help through The Magdalen House Next Step Program. Welcome to the neighborhood!”
– Tim Grigsby, COO at Dallas 24 Hour Club

Maggie’s New House – July Highlights

  • Exterior: Painting is in progress and shingles have been placed.
  • Interior: Window trim and cabinet design/placement has been finalized.
  • Did you know? We’ll be less than a mile from two of our most utilized community partners.

July Progress

If you’ve driven along Gaston Avenue in the last couple of weeks, you may have started to notice small changes happening to the exterior, including shingles on the roof and cedar shakes in the gables. Before you know it, the siding will be transformed to a beautiful cream complemented with stark white trim, olive accents in the windows, and small touches of navy blue.

Inside, the interior window trim has been finalized – one of many details that not only reflects the historic character of the home but dignifies the space. The design and placement of all the cabinets, upstairs and downstairs, have been finalized and we’ve elected to equip each cabinet with premium hardware to ensure its lifetime durability and use. With foam insulation and setting the drywall next up, we will have real walls in no time at all!

Did you know?

Not only is there a DART bus stop right on the corner, but we are within a mile of two of our most utilized community partners.

Wall of Hope Brick Campaign

Do you have your brick for the Wall of Hope? Whether you’re a friend or family member of someone who has been affected by alcoholism or addiction, or are in recovery yourself, we’d love for you to have a brick on the Wall of Hope as a representation of the community that helps an alcoholic get to the other side and find freedom.

If you’re not sure what to inscribe on your brick, have any questions, or need help with the process, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

When you buy a brick, you give women hope.

July Snapshots

You can see the cedar shakes in the gables and the colors that are transforming the exterior: (1) Slate navy: handrails, etc.⁠ (2) Green: window accents⁠ (3) Cream: siding⁠ (4) Stark white: outside trim

The teams are working on restoring and replacing the original hardwood floors, and the interior window trim really gives the house character.

You can see the DART Bus Stop from the front porch, and Dallas 24 Hour Club and The Agape Clinic are just around the corner.
