Magnolia Award

 In honor of our 25th Anniversary we created The Magnolia Award.  The Magdalen House Magnolia Award was created to recognize the wonderful legacy of service displayed everyday at the Magdalen House.

We chose the Magnolia because it is a symbol of perseverance, dignity and the ability to endure hardships and rise above them. We selected the inverted triangle because it represents the concept that as we grow our responsibility and privilege to serve also grows.

If you know someone who deserves recognition for service to the house please see any Board Member for a nomination form.
