Maryvale's Mission, inspired by the compassionate service of our Vincentian Founders, faithful to Catholic Social Teaching rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the charism of the Daughters of Charity, is to heal, empower and educate children and families in order to instill hope for a more fulfilling future. We do this by providing residential, educational, mental health and community-based services in an environment of dignity, love and respect.

Founded in 1856 by the Daughters of Charity, Maryvale was the first orphanage for the growing city of Los Angeles. It has operated continuously since then, evolving to respond to the changing needs of the families and children of Los Angeles.
