First, if you are working on a map project, you may want to reference the wonderful map of Maycomb that has been produced by eNotes. I have included a link in the "Sources" section below.
To answer your question, Calpurnia lives in The Quarters, an area that houses the town's African American population. The Quarters is situated down a dirt road, off the main highway. It is across the railroad tracks from the Ewell's home. The First Purchase African M.E. Church is located within The Quarters, on the outer Southern limits of Maycomb.
After Calpurnia takes her to this church, Scout asks Calpurnia if she can come visit her at her home one day. Calpurnia replies that she'd be happy to have Scout visit any time she'd like. Despite this offer, we never learn the exact location of Calpurnia's home--only that she lives in The Quarters. Because Calpurnia is so involved in the church community, it would not be far-fetched to think that she lives near the church. This would imply that she lives across the tracks from the Ewell family.
